    What grade and/or subject will you be teaching this year?

    I'm back in 3rd for the 7th straight year. So hard to believe I've been there that long.

    Well, after 15 years of preschool SPE, this fall I will be teaching a self-contained HS SPE class. Life skills and academics. I'm excited!

    Moving from 4th to 2nd, by choice (and a little begging!) I am ready for a change.

    Right now, it's a grade 6/7 split class, although it could end up being a straight grade 7. I'll be teaching math, language, history, geography, science, visual arts, drama--basically everything except music, gym and french.

    After 20+ years of being 60% English and 40% philosophy, I will (per my own request) be only 40% philosophy. That's two sections each semester of my favorite course and out the door each day by 10:45.

    I won't miss working 6 1/2 days a week, but I'll miss some of the lit classes.

    I understand that feeling! That is why I got to move from Pre-K to the HS class. I was ready for a change.

    I'll be in 6th grade (elementary) again, I love it and I'm not ready to change yet. I've spent too much time on 6th grade common core for the last few months to change anytime soon. :lol:

    I'll be teaching 1st grade for the second year, and my second year of teaching total. I LOVE 1st grade. :wub: Our last day of school was Friday, and I've already spent many hours on the computer making things for my new classroom...I guess I'm crazy!!

    3 sections of US history(11th graders).
    2 sections of World History(9th graders).

    I'm glad to get to do both. I like US better so I'm glad I got 3 sections of it and not 3 world.

    Wow, congratulations! Your experience will serve you and your school well.

    After four years of teaching seniors, I'm moving to 9th to be the Team Leader for the year-long, cross-curriculum program. I don't want to be a principal, at least not now, but I do want to be in a leadership position within the next few years. This is a fantastic chance to start on that path!

    I'll be teaching 7th grade language arts.

    I'm limited at my school. We're a 6-8 building, and I'm not certified for 6th grade. I only teach English classes.

    I will teach English 2 and English 3 (most likely 1 period + 3 periods, respectively) and 2 periods elective, current events.
    I think after the first quarter I will change current events to career explorations, and then alternate again for the second part of the year.

    This is my 3rd year teaching 8th grade. However, I've never had the same "structure" to my day! Every year I've taught a different combination of classes.

    This year I'm co-teaching 2 classes of ELA, teaching 1 class of resource ELA for struggling learners, and doing one tutoring period for my kids on IEP who just need a little extra "push" :)

    This coming year, I will have been a teacher for half of my life. It doesn't seem that long.

    Thank you. Yes, Head of School in a private school is the same as a principal. I was Assistant Head of School last year (and Dean for many, many years before that) and our Head resigned this year, much to our surprise, so I was the logical one to take over.

    I'm excited, but there is a great deal of sadness about leaving something that I love. I've taught for more than half of my life.

    Good luck, catnfiddle. Leadership in a school is being a teacher of teachers. You'll do fine.

    3rd year of teaching! Looping to 7th SPED from 6th SPED last year. I'm so excited to keep my kids even though they're all grumpy and over me now. :lol: I had to console the 5th graders on the last day of school...3 of them cried because I wasn't going to be their teacher! My kids are like "UGH, YOU CAN HAVE HER." :whistle:

    Love that....darling...7th grade attitude. :wub: :rolleyes:
