Any help will be appreciated... I am currently in a job I grow less and less happy with. I do, however, love history, went to college for a BA in history, and later returned after a few years in the military for a master's in history. To be clear, I did not follow through with the master's, although, I was doing very well in it. I want to teach history. I want to teach only history... While I was progressing through the master's, I was told by multiple teachers advising me that I may end up as a social studies teacher and may be asked to teach economics, geography, psychology.... I lost interest. I was also told I would be teaching at a public school in an urban setting to start. Again, I lost interest. I can only see myself at a private school, probably in the suburbs. Is it true I may be asked to teach another subject if I go into social studies? If I go into a history teachers program, how competitive will it be on the other side? Is it also true teachers begin in public (urban) schools? Is there competition for private schools? Thank you.
