My Special Education degree qualifies me for both Special and Elementary Education certification; if I get hired on as an elementary teacher, and I teach in an elementary classroom, does my grant turn into a student loan?

Yes, that could happen because the elementary classroom is not considered a “high-need field”. However, a special education elementary classroom is considered an area of high need. It will be your responsibility to choose a position that meets the service agreement requirements.
