Godwilling, I have a job at my school for next year and will be reassigned from seniors to freshmen. I've never taught freshmen before, only sophomores and seniors so I'm not quite sure what to expect. On top of that, other teachers have been making a lot of comments about how terrible they are (and my current students have made similar comments as well!). Now I'm just extremely nervous. I work in a Title I school and the freshmen and senior population are vastly different. I student taught 8th grade and enjoyed it, but it wasn't quite right for me -- I'm concerned freshmen will be just like middle school all over again. I'll also be on a team which I've never done before (except middle school). I'm also excited, though, because it will be a support of other teachers. Any words of encouragement, advice, etc. on teaching freshmen?
