Many of you know about my situation from last week (I had to interview for a different position in my school, and I didn't get it). So, today I was talking to my principal a bit about summer school. I'm teaching reading to struggling students going into 5th grade. He said that he is interested to see how I like teaching that age group and "looking into different possibilities/options" or something like that. He also said that he made my 4th grade summer school position happen (summer school is highly competitive for teachers in my district). There is a 4th grade teacher at my school retiring after next year... I'm wondering if that was his "plan" the whole time. The thing is, I don't know if I would want to teach 4th grade. I just wish I was informed of my own career plans!
