How is the job market for secondary school history teachers?

I've been teaching English as a Second/Foreign language for the last couple of years, and I would like to get started on a career back home in the US. I'm looking into post bacculurate degrees that would certify me in Washington state. I want to stick with teaching, but Math and English seem so boring. How tough is it to find jobs teaching high school History? I've thought about teaching math, but the idea of teaching something that I hate for like 30 years just terrifies me. Not that I really hate math, I'm pretty good at it, it just seems so... heartless.

really bad, there is an abundance .You are looking at making roughly 35-38 K a year. English teachers are about the same.

As the first poster noted, you'll have a hard time finding a job teaching history unless you are also a coach. Most of the history positions are given to coaches, which is a shame, because I hate that history is treated so simplisticaly... More
