You may be a good coach and teacher, but in many districts the situation is a bit askew. In some districts, the coach teaches one or two classes a day and then makes double the salary of the other teachers. In addition, the coaches are less qualified to teach. I know where a math teacher has retired. When the school noard accepted his resignation, they voted to hire a basketball coach. The superintendent decided that the retiring teachers classes would be divided among the coaches, many of whom are not certified to teach math. They will be required to take two math courses a summer until they get their certification.
