I have interviewed for this position and I know what they told me it is like, but what is it really? I was told 15 students, four classes a day, prep days it is three days. Block scheduling. I taught in a self-contained 1st/2nd/3rd grade classroom last year. What can I do to make a smooth transition into HS and to be successful when I have no experience with HS'ers!?!?!? The school grades came out today, it's a C for this HS. 41% of the students are meeting the reading standards (up from 39% last year) and 51% of the students are making gains in reading (up from 49%). My pressures of course are to raise these numbers. How do I do that! HELP!
