A separate license for teaching engineering courses is not needed or necessary.  I have been teaching for 4 years now and I have taught engineering at the high school level for 2 of those years.  I teach a rigorous amount of Math and Physics that astound my peers who are current Engineers in the field.  Those that wish to teach after being an Engineer can already do so following one of the already created routes.  This proposition is unnecessary and has the potential to create more problems in Virginia than it can solve.
