I usually think what you think!
of course, but that doesn't mean I'd try any less
A number of the teachers in my school don't teach 10th grade Rdg/Math/Wri, nor do they use the skills they wouldn't be able to pass in their daily lives. Obviously, they were able to pass 10th grade at some point. They would know where to find the resources to brush up on those skills if they needed them.
Edit: OK guys, so you teach 1st grade math for 30 years then try to pass a 10th grade geometry test without a lot of reviewing first. You forget a lot over the years.
Besides, as we are supposed to think about our students, everyone has different talents (I know, this is counter to our precious NCLB) so the person who is a genius in communication arts might be terrible at math.
With the No Child Left Behind AYP standards, that is highly unlikely. Now in Virginia, most colleges require you to pass the Praxis I tests before you even enroll in their school and declare education as your major. 10th grade math is Geometry. I can't think of one person smart enough to teach for more than one year who can't do 10th grade Geometry, Reading, or Writing. All teachers in Virginia must be able to read, write, and do math on a professional level or they will not survive one month of teaching at any grade level.
