Since I'm postponing my last phase of my teacher education program until the economy picks up, I am going to go back to school for my master's. Since I will be teaching single subject English, I had always just assumed I would get my maseter's in English. However, while browsing job postings, I'm noticing that many state that a master's is preferable although they don't specify which master's. I've also notice that pay scales at school are commensurate with how much continuing education one has (although these don't specify what kind of continuing education is required, either). So my question is, as a single subject English teacher, would someone interested in pursuing additional education be better off getting a master's in, say, English or would some sort of master's in Education be more marketable?
