    MsBittner contradicts herself. FANBOYS is a way to remember to co-ordinate conjunctions that do NOT make a clause subordinate. The clause starting with "so" is not subordinate. "Whatever is the reason" is the subordinate clause. Noun clauses starting with words such as "when", "before", "whatever", etc. are subordinate.

    It's the second part of your sentence, "so that I can work on my teaching skills."

    Do you know about FANBOYS conjunctions? They can help you remember this. (And remember to insert the necessary comma before "so.")

    Edit: Yikes, I have made a mistake. My apologies.
