I'm in FL but if you're in Memphis then you're in the South so we have similar standards. I know up north it is more complicated but in the south you should be able to get a "waiver" for being "out-of-field" as long as you are a certified teacher. They give you a certain amount of time to meet compliance by taking the test or doing coursework (usually a year). What I will say though is you would want to find ways to sell yourself as a teacher of that subject (do trainings, reword your resume, try to get experience in that subject). The subject makes a difference too...I know this happens more frequently with reading/literacy (not English), math, and science because those subjects have a shortage of qualified candidates.
