I taught 1st grade for two years in SoCal...then up and moved to NorCal this summer, where I am now teaching 5th. Don't get me wrong, I love my new school, coworkers, and students, but I am feeling homesick for my old familiar, school, coworkers, and especially grade level! Things were so much easier when I felt like I knew what I was doing!! Most of the time I think I like upper grades better, until I remember that in 1st grade I felt comfortable and confident! Has anyone else experienced this with a school and/or grade level change??
