    Re: Health Teachers? Help!
    Soon-to-be Mrs. Moore

    I just graduated with my Master's in School Healh Education from
    Southern CT State University & I'm having such a hard time
    finding a job. Most of the positions (which there isn't even
    many) are looking for dual PE/Health certification. It's really
    frustrating that I spent so much time & money & put in such an
    effort & I feel like there are so many obstacles & challenges
    already in my way. I wish I had known that a lot of school
    districts are preferring the dual certification; I would have
    gone for Community Health Education or Public Health. Oh
    is what it is & I just have to make the best out of it!
