Hi and howdy! I'm a certified theatre/speech teacher looking to move to the Tulsa area this summer, due to my husband's job transfer. I am working on my OK certification, but I'm looking for information on the following... 1. What grade levels usually teach speech/drama? 2. Are either usually a 1 semester class or a full-year course? 3. How many classes/periods are usually taught in a day? 4. Does OK do block scheduling for high school? 5. What professional association does OK have? (I have done an exhaustive search, but cannot locate one for public school educators) 6. If you hear of any vacancies in your district, would you please let me know?

Thank you so much for any information you can provide! Sincerely, Jane O.
