I haven't posted in here in a very long time! I would love your advice. At my current school (K-8 independent school), my principal gave me the choice of grade level and subject area to teach next year. I chose 6th grade ELA. 4th and 6th grade are my favorite grades. I will work with a team of three other teachers, each teaching a specific subject. I will have close to 90 students. My background includes student teaching 4th grade, 2 years in 1st, 1 year in 5th and 2 years in 2nd grade. I've also been a long term sub in 3rd and 6th grades. I prefer upper elementary to middle school grades. I don't want to go below 4th grade anymore. Yesterday, I received an email from a principal at an elementary school very close to my neighborhood asking if I'd like to interview for a fourth grade position. I didn't apply for the job. She had my name on file because I had contacted her a year ago regarding my interest in the school. This school is part of a larger district. It has a lot more resources and the pay will be $3,000 more a year. The calendar is pretty much the same. Both schools are within 10 minutes from my house. I haven't had the interview yet, so I may not have a choice at all, but in the event I get offered the 4th grade position, I honestly don't know what to do. I'm sure I will learn more in the interview and that may help me. What are your thoughts on teaching 4th grade vs. 6th ELA, teaching at a small school vs. large school, etc? What questions should I ask the principal in the interview? I know this doesn't seem like a problem, but it is. I have a good relationship with my current principal, but I'm not "attached" to my current situation. Either choice will be something new for me.
