This is my first year teaching 2nd grade. In my previous teaching asignments, I've taught 3rd, 4th, and a 5th grade science class. I just completed our first week and I have to say that 2nd grade is my favorite age to teach. They are still eager to please and so sweet, yet they are starting to gain their independence. I am so happy this year with my kids and my classroom. I know that we're still in the "honeymoon" stage but I can already tell so much difference between last year teaching the third graders and this year teaching 2nd grade. What is your favorite grade to teach? Here's to a successful year for us all!
