I've posted once or twice in response to questions but never introduced myself or really participated in discussions. Last year, I was a regular sub at my son's school, typically working 2-3 days a week. I subbed for 1st-12th so I had the opportunity to work with a wide age range and because I subbed so often was considered a permanent, but floating, teacher.
This year, I have been invited back to teach 2 classrooms part-time, but as a full-time teacher. I will be teaching 2nd grade in the morning for language arts, reading, and math and the combined 4th-5th grade in the afternoon for directed learning which includes culture, social studies, and time for other subjects. Our school is organized so that we have individual grades in a class for the core subjects in the morning and then joint grades for other subjects in the afternoon. I was originally invited back to teach 4th and 5th in the afternoon because the primary teacher would be time sharing between two campuses; however, we lost one of our "pod" classes for 1st-3rd and ended up needing a 2nd grade teacher just for the mornings.
Anyway, I'm glad this group is around and am sure I will be picking yoru brains for help as the new school year kicks off and am learning to manage two classrooms, one as a secondary teacher.
