    Whew! Please disregard my last thread (although thanks for the responses). I got the call this morning that I'll be teaching 6th grade LAL/SS - gen ed. I'm VERY excited. The only teensy bit of disappointment is that there was the possibility of it being a self-contained class where I'd be teaching all subjects and I love to teach math but now I won't be teaching that. It's still awesome news! I taught 7th and 8th grade last year and am excited to be working with the younger kids. I'm also slightly nervous that I'm going to have to figure out how to modify my teaching to work with mostly gen ed kids and a much larger class size. I'm sure I'll figure it out. I am so, so happy!! :D

    Congrats! You'll figure it out, it's the same jump I made just a few years ago (except I also taught math).

    Great, here I was replying in your other thread & you started another thread saying it's confirmed! Congrats & enjoy your position. Wow, 6th gr, that's a tough age, but if you're used to 7th & 8th, this should be easy for you.
