I've been frantically hoping to land a PE position for elementary and thus far have not been successful. Today I received a call for an interview at a Middle school. I have subbed at middle schools in the past and I always told myself that they weren't for me because I found the majority of students as belligerent attention-seekers. I once got a long term sub position in one and had a bad experience where one student put my name in mean graffiti in the girl's bathroom and I experienced a lot of theft and damage. I hate to let my past experiences jade my outlook but I want so bad to be a PE coach and know that I'm a good teacher. I would love some advice about how to reach these kids and how you deal with working in a middle school.
