I've been waiting to post this for fear of something going wrong but since I start tomorrow... I got a permanent teaching job! I will be working at a private school for kids with emotional disturbance and behavior problems, very similar to a school I did a long-term sub job in last year. I did have to leave the short-term sub job I was currently in, but they understood since this is a permanent position! If you've read my previous job search posts, this is one of the schools that I had to turn down a position for, for another position that didn't work out. They ended up calling me again when something new popped up! I will be teaching 5th-8th grade in one classroom. Right now I only have 8 kids (maximum is 12) and I think they're fifth, seventh, and eighth graders. I am really excited to start and finally get the year rolling! Anyone have any tips on multiage classrooms? Obviously a lot of small group work and independent work, especially with the behavior issues. I am considering trying to implement Daily 5 in my room- anyone have any thoughts on that? I've used it before and really like it!
