I teach in a very small private school. I'm finishing up my second year with PreK and I love my job. I'm pretty sure our director is planning to combine PreK and kindergarten next year. She hasn't come right out and said so -- but I'm fairly sure this is the plan. She has talked about this plan in very vague terms and, so far, isn't offer much guidance in how to structure this new arrangement. Right now I expect to have 8 PreK kids ranging in age from 3 to 4 to older 4's (turning 5 soon into the school year). We have only 3 K's enrolled right now - one reason for the combination class -- but 1 of the 3 is reading on a strong 1st grade level and has math skill almost that advanced. I'm not sure I'm going to get the guidance I would like to have from my director. I am not a kindergarten teacher and really feel I lack the knowledge to excel in this role. So -- I'm not really sure what I'm asking except HELP!! How can this work? What can I do to get ready? Anyone have experience with this combo? I am worried that a job I love is going to become a job I hate.
