I'm curious on how many teachers change grade levels every few years or even schools to get a different grade level. Talking with one of our SLPs this years she said "Oh I move schools every 4-5 years because for myself and the kids after having them from PK up then need to get use to someone different and I like having different kids after awhile" Which totally called to me as a sped teacher. I know in the past I definitely got attached to my students and seeing them off and getting a new bunch is a great opportunity. But I know at my school we have the 30 year KG teacher, 16th year 5th grade, etc. People just don't move. I know they're masters at what they do but I wonder about being that stationary in such a vast career. I said once this year that I'd love to teacher each transition grade K, 1, 3 and 5th before moving to a social studies position. I know for myself I definitely want to try as much variety as I can just to find my niche because who knows what will call to me. I feel like after this coming year, I would be open to any grade level and the only thing that would make me upset would be moving to a math/science position. Just science if there was a triad split in a grade level I'd be just fine being the science teacher but never math. How often do YOU move around? And is it usually voluntary or involuntary? Is it usually within the same school? District or do you have to leave to try something new?
