I started out studying in a second ed program but due to some family issues, I needed a lighter course load so I changed to elementary ed thinking someday if I truly wanted to be a secondary ed teacher I could go back to school then. In the meantime, I've nearly completed my degree and have been doing my practicum in elementary school. The teachers I meet keep asking what grade I want to teach and truly, I have no idea. I love the classroom I'm in but have done lessons in some of the other grades as well and like those just as much. I also keep having this nagging feeling that I may still prefer secondary or middle even though I really am enjoying elementary. Everyone I talk to tells me things like "I always knew I wanted to teach 3rd grade" or 6th grade or whatever...why is it that I'm approaching student teaching and still don't know what grade I really want. Was anyone else in the same boat and just didn't know exactly where they wanted to be? How did you come to discover where you were meant to be? I'm also really stressed out right now with my course load so maybe that's gotten me all worried about making my mind up.
