Moving Up......I have been teaching middle school since 2008. It was not my first choice of grade levels, but it was the position I was offered in the area of my hometown. Middle school has been rough at times..6th, 7th and 8th graders...11, 12 and 13 year olds. Need I even say more?
...Finally, after four years, I am "graduating" to high school.
...I realize that 9th, 10th, 11th and 12th graders...14, 15, 16 and 17 year olds may also be rough. Still, I'm looking forward to the change.
