Does a Publications(Yearbook) Teacher count as a humanities teacher in the letter of recommendation?

I've been wondering about rec letters lately. I would like to request one from my Publications teacher, but for a lot of colleges that require a letter from a "Humanities Teacher", I would like to know if I would be able to have my Publications Teacher write the "humanities teacher" rec letter?

Websites such as MIT say it's "one from a humanities, social science, or language teacher" and things similar to that.

In Publications (which is a course in which we produce the yearbook for our HS), we do learn a little bit of news writing and discuss questions such as ethnical concerns behind journalism; however, it's not a very legit "humanities class" although writing is involved.

Do you guys think my Publications teacher would be able to write for that "humanities teacher" spot?

Hello,

According to google, "Humanities is the study of human culture and society, including art, language, and history." So no, I don't think you should.
