Requirements to Teach Phys Ed/Health

I am currently a junior in the Middle School Math and Science Program at my University. I chose this path because I felt that there is a shortage of teachers interested in teaching these subjects, and I've always been strong in these areas--particularly Math. However, in a previous lifetime, I was a certified personal trainer and have a strong passion for health and fitness. Somewhere down the road, I'd love to explore teaching either Health or Physical Education, and was curious if anyone could give me some insight as to the requirements beyond my teaching degree needed to be eligible to teach in these fields. Any advice would be greatly appreciated!!

are you in? I imagine that makes a difference. I believe that in Texas, for example, all you have to do is take the ExCet test for Kinesiology, but I would think the qualifications for your state would be on the state education agency's web site under certification requirements. Your advisor ought to be able to tell you also.
