I am trying to decide what I am going to get my degree in (or if I should wait to get my degree). I am undecided between elementary education teacher or a 5th-8th grade science/history teacher. I currently work at a school and I know that we will only have 1 position open (teacher retiring) and that position will be filled by moving a parapro who is certified into that position. There is a college in my town that graduates about 60-80 elementary teachers a year. I am not sure about middle school science teachers and the need in my area.
On one hand I think it would be best for me to go the elementary education route since I already have my foot in the door. On the other hand, my long term career goals would lean more toward middle school science since I want to get my Master's degree in Outdoor Education.
