I graduated with a BS and thought I was an English teacher.
I got Spanish certification and became a Spanglish teacher.
I moved and quit teaching English (job availability, you know).
I got my first English I class on top of 2 Spanish I classes and 2 Spanish II classes.
Also, my last name has changed 3 times since I started teaching English.
And now? Now, I don't know what I am. Our school has recently decided to become a STEM school, focused on Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math. Where does Spanish fit in? I ask. We have no idea, they reply. But English, you know, everyone still has to write and all that.
As a matter of fact, we might not even have courses (at least in the traditional sense), starting with next year's 9th graders. We're getting end-of-course test, standard course of study, and even seat time waivers (we think). We will make up our own curriculum around STEM-related, health and life science problems. Actually, 4 of the 8 of us will. I would dearly like to be one of those 4.
Then I might finally be able to decide what I am.
