    Just curious what grade level, subjects, specialist area everyone will be teaching this year. Is it a new grade for you?

    I'm going into my 7th year in 3rd grade! Miss the little ones, but I love 3rd!

    Moving, by choice, from 4th to 2nd. Love 4th grade, but I needed a change for several reasons.

    I'll be leaving special ed (which has been all or part of my teaching assignment for the past 7 years) and teaching a grade 6/7 combined class. I'll be teaching all subjects except for French, Music and Phys Ed. I'm so excited!

    Third grade is an AWESOME grade... young enough to still love their teacher, and old enough to be more responsible. :)

    That's how I feel about 4th grade. This will be my fifth year teaching fourth grade and I love the age! When they come in on the first day of school, their eyes are wide open with wonder and I get to see them transform into these savvy fifth graders as I guide them.

    Okay...enough Hallmark moment. :)

    My 3rd year in grade 1. I love getting these tiny peanuts in September - most who can't read - and then watching them become little scholars! It's incredible how much they progress!

    I will be teaching 3rd Grade Math, Science, and Social Studies. I have taught 9 years in third grade and 2 years before that in fourth. Up until last year we were self contained. I am loving just teaching the three subjects to two different classes.

    My second year in 1st grade, and my second year of teaching! I'm so excited not to be a first year teacher anymore - I have a TON to learn of course, but I feel more like I know what I'm doing this year!

    I LOVE first grade. They come in as babies and they grow and mature SO much throughout the year. They become readers and writers! I absolutely LOVE guiding that process and I am honestly looking forward to school starting! (Although I have a LOT to do before then!)

    I'll be in my second year of teaching music. This will most likely be my last year at this school, and I assume I'll probably be back in general ed after this (just because more positions are available).

    7th self-contained Special Ed. Looping with my kids up from 6th. :)

    It will be my 3rd year of teaching. I have had a new grade each year, including a year of student teaching. Some day I'll teach the same thing twice! :lol:

    I forgot to mention I am teaching all subjects in gifted 5th, also. Last year, I taught just language arts, science, and social studies. This year, math comes back into the equation-- no pun intended. ;)

    2004-2008: Fourth grade (taught all subjects, though we switched classes and I always taught the advanced reading. In my second year, I taught advanced math and LOVED it.)
    2008-2012: Advanced fourth grade (self-contained, all subjects)
    2012-2013: Fourth grade (L.A. Sci, S.S.)
    2013-2014: New school, fifth grade gifted (self-contained, all subjects)

    Nope. Evidently k-3 are being departmentalized.

    Fine. But I wish I had known before planning and purchasing.

    I am director of a preschool in Riverside County that offers high quality preschool education so my concern would be to maintain a perfect balance of academic and social instruction that could provide the child a solid academic and developmental foundation.

    Last year I taught PreK3, this year I'll be in PreK4! :D I've also taught Kindergarten so it's great to see the ranges of child development.

    K-6 Reading intervention. Last year I did all the grades by myself, but this year I'm splitting the grades with another reading teacher that was hired so I'm not sure which grades I'll have yet.
