I just went back to teaching last year after being home with my kids. There weren't any jobs at my kids' school last year, so I took a middle school position. Now, my kids are going to a new school that is opening this year. They currently have a 4th grade opening. I already was planning to return to middle school back to 6th for next year. But, I'm considering speaking to the principal about this 4th grade opening. I formerly taught in an elementary school, and there are pros and cons to teaching middle. I have 3 kids who will be at this new elem. school. Have any of you taught at a school where you kids attended before? Did you like it? What were the specific challenges?
