    I'm making the transition from Elementary/Middle to High School. I currently teach Spanish PreK-8th and have been offered several high school positions, and I'm thinkining of making the change. Any suggestions or things I should know? I'd appreciate your insight!

    Going from elementary to high school would be hard! I teach high school and I don't know how elementary teachers do it!!! All the screaming and crying and little kid issues....

    Big kids have different issues. Be prepared for teenaged behavior. Treat them kindly, fairly, and don't take any crud from them. Look at websites about secondary education techniques.

    Good Luck!
