    Just think of the wide range you have in a single grade classroom and make it a little bigger :D. With the exception of math, I'll be teaching the same types of skills to all. I'll still pull reading groups at their level, have mini-lessons in writing, etc. I love the collaboration and community that multi-age offers!

    I just got hired on Thursday! For a job I didn't even apply for! I so impressed the Superintendent in my interview for another position on Monday that he said that the administration at that school wanted to hire me but he thought he had a position in a city that would suit me better!

    So I'll be teaching Grades 6-8 at a Middle School next year!

    1) I have been trying since the middle of May because I decided to resign my current permanent position.

    2) I sent out 16 resumes.

    3) I attended 0 job fairs, but had 9 calls for interviews and was short listed for 2 positions that I am aware of.

    4) Saskatchewan

    5) Middle Years

    Sorry I didn't post that before. *blushes*

I went to an interview this morning and when I got home another school had called me offering me a 2nd grade spot, so of course I accepted. Its the school I have been subbing and assisting at since Jan, so I feel relived to know the school ahead of time. yay! Add me as a 2nd grade teacher in South Carolina :2up:
