Hey, I’m a long-time lurker, first-time poster so sorry if this is the wrong place to post this but…
I’m a college freshmen working towards a BA in English and teacher certification for K-12, but whenever I think of myself as a teacher, I always end up imagining myself as a Religion teacher instead of an English teacher. I really have a desire to teach religion in a Catholic high school, but does anyone have any advice on how to go about this?
I’ve been thinking of double-majoring in English and Religious Studies, but I go to a public university (as much as I wanted to go to a Catholic one, I can’t afford it) so I’m not sure if I should trust a secular institution to teach me about religion and I’m not sure how much weight it would hold in a Catholic setting. Can anyone give me some advice, or at least tell me the requirements for teaching religion in Catholic high schools?
Thanks for any help,
