Okay, now that I've been teaching 4th grade for 2 1/2 months--I am starting to MISS middle school. I feel bad, because I love these kids. Things just move sooooo slow because they need it broken down sooooo much, and I'm the kind of person who likes more material, and a quicker pace. Since my internship ended last December and I have been employed ever since, I'm still a *new* teacher. I just started in this district in September, leaving the district I interned in and began my teaching career in. When March or April comes around and we do our intents for next year, do you think I should *wait* on expressing interest to return to middle school? There is a middle school right next to my elementary school and I eventually want to transfer up there. But I'm also hesitant about moving around during the first 3, probationary years. Do you think I should stick it out in 4th grade for the next couple of years, or would it be okay to express interest in middle school?
