teacher standards/certification

I am currently a graduate student very interested in teaching. I grew
up in Louisiana and in many instances I had teachers that knew nothing
of the topic they were trying to teach. Shortly after I graduated
high school they had a gym teacher who never took a single physics
class teaching the AP physics program. I find this disturbing.
Surely things are different in Texas and the present. I guess my
question is what are the requirements to become certified to teach a
particular subject. For instance, what level of education must that
person have in the particular subject they want to teach. Also, what
are the post certification duties. Is a certified teacher required to
take so many hours of workshops or classes in order to reaquaint
themselves with the new findings in the field of their subject?
