    Yeah, ALL teachers, even kinder. My degree is in English, but it's English with an elementary ed. emphasis. Here you just minor in education. My minor is in reading instruction. We have masters degrees in various ares of education, but we haven't had bachelor's degrees in education for about twenty years now. When I went back to school this made me very happy, because English was the subject I really had always wanted for my major.

    You still have to take education methods courses; there just is no education major. Unfortunately for teachers coming in from out of state, their education degrees won't get them a job (at least not in the city. I suppose that out on the plains, where jobs are harder to fill, they might. But I don't think so). I have known plenty of out-of-state teachers WITH EXPERIENCE who can't believe they're back in college, working on another degree.
