    Yes this one does but my first one didn't. In fact she didn't even understand elementary classes. She was a high school math teacher. She was a witch, and I thank god everyday she got rid of me. Have Tons of respect for my last two principals.

    We have the best principal in the world. He "gets it"! I think our admin tends to appreciate the grade levels they don't understand as much even more!

    I am thankful for my school, which is PK-2nd (the others are at another campus) and a principal who used to teach kinder! But, I've been there, although it was first grade and my first year teaching.

    curriculum

    Hi All, this is my first time posting... i'm hoping someone can enlighten me. My admin decided to implement a new curriculum called Reading Street starting with my kindergarten class. I do not like it AT ALL. I can go on and on about why I do not like it... but I'll spare the details. What can i do about it? I've spoken to admin but they want us to try it for the year but i just feel like my reputation is on the line.... it's making the class boring and i don't feel like students are learning. what to do?!

    Can you use parts of it supplement with real literature, etc. That's what I did when we used that program. I used the digital resources and the leveled readers-but everything else I pulled from other sources. I found their activities to be very low level and just don't believe everyone reading out of a basal reader is effective when you have such a spectrum of abilities.
