I've been looking for teaching jobs for a few months, but have restricted myself to high schools and middle schools in about a 3 mile radius. Luckily, the local high school needs a biology teacher, and I had a great interview and very positive follow-up email from the principal. Unfortunately, they just listed the position as Biology / Coach (the teacher that is retiring was an assistant football coach). Needless to say, coaching anything other than teeball would be quite a stretch! The principal was doing his best to figure out and rearrange schedules, and in the meantime also listed a English / Yearbook position. I emailed to ask if he'd consider a Biology / Yearbook position instead, and he said that would be perfect if I had a journalism certification. I don't, but could add one by taking the test. He seems really interested in having me do that, and I have my fingers crossed that this might eventually work out! So...I have a masters in Molecular Bio, and I am certified to teach (and have taught) high school Biology. But for the last 5 years I've been writing and teaching classes on photography, photo editing (in Photoshop), and scrapbooking. I've written and designed several class books, but I have no actual experience in Yearbook, although I think it would be a blast and a great fit with my current interests. Is this too much of a stretch? Yearbook I'm sure is a HUGE undertaking, and I have zero experience. It looks like the school currently uses Josten's, and they do have an advisor workshop this summer. Is that something that would be a must? It would be a long trip and a lot of money (unless school covered it I guess). There is a UIL workshop in Austin, but it looks like it's mainly for students plus their advisors, and needless to say I don't think I could get that lined up for this summer. Am I crazy for even considering this???
