I teach in an urban school, 5 classes of 9th grade. Everything is going great in my 2nd year, no pink slips etc. Well, starting tomorrow, I have my only 9th grade English class taken away and replaced with an 11th grade English class. New kids, unfamiliar cirriculum, PSSA goals etc. I am so pissed. They do this because of class sizes, so its not that uncommon. My other 4 classes are the same, so I devote more time to them. I can't help but feeling like this class will be my "red-headed step child". I'll do the work, but I am not happy about it. Sorry, had to vent!
