    I am very nervous, but very excited. I taught 5th grade for 2 years, I'll miss those buggars. But I student taught 3rd, and I know I will love them. I like the curriculum...solar system, geometry, introductory fractions.

    If any third teachers out there have great resources, please post them for me :)

    You know, I have been not "feeling" school since I got out. As a matter of a fact, my school bag is still in my trunk! But now I'm pretty excited to get thinking about next year :)

    Congrats pieces! Funny, I'm trying to do the direct opposite. I am wanting to move to 5th grade. Don't know yet if it will happen. I'm keeping my fingers cross!

    I wanted either K-2 or another 5th position at another school, but there were no openings and I didn't get an interview for the 5th position. Oh well. Now watch, that other principal will call me in for an interview, lol
