    To all;

    David Powell, a teacher at Hemet HS in Hemet, CA, and the coach of the school’s fencing team, is looking to retire in a couple of years and is looking for someone to take over the program.

    The team has been steadily improving with a number of the members competing outside the SoCal Scholastic League and going to JOs.

    Contacts him for more details at dmpowell49@gmail.com California teaching credential required (or working toward one).

    Please spread the word.

    Man those are some crazy requirements.
    I thought it was tough in Texas but California is worse.

    I think the minimum is BA/S or higher, pass the CBEST (which anyone with a BA/S should pass, I did), complete a student teaching assignment, complete a teacher subject matter course (or pass the test) and a couple other courses.

    that said, there are schools who hire coaches who just work on stipend and only coach sports, or are working towards the requirements. Lot of schools/districts though are hesitant to hire single-subject teachers.


    how does it work in texas?
