Does anyone teach sixth grade in an elementary setting? If so, are you certified in elementary ed or middle school ed? Are you self-contained or departmentalized? Would you be allowed to do the opposite (by state requirements, not school policy)? My district decided that the elementary schools will slowly absorb 6th grade; however, my state licenses K-4, P-5, or 5-9. Would someone who has a P-5 certification be allowed to teach sixth in an elementary setting, or would the district have to pull middle school teachers?
