Best way for art teachers to become photography teachers as well??

    I'm an art teacher now looking for a permanent job after years of supply work. It seems most schools now want art teachers to teach photography too. Although I have taken short courses in Photoshop and traditional photography, they were a loooong time ago and I've forgotten most of it. I'm trying to revise my knowledge at home, but I'm certainly not confident enough to teach photography yet, although I know the assessment objectives are much like those for fine art. My question is this: can an experienced art teacher learn to teach photography "on the job"? I'm being very honest on my job applications, but will schools take me on if I haven't actually taught it? I guess it depends on how expert the other teachers are and how much support they're willing to give ..any thoughts on this gratefully received - I'm sure I'm not the only one wondering about this!
