Elementary -> Middle School
I was recently contacted out of the blue by an associate principal at a middle school in my district, who asked me to apply for a new math/science teaching position because he heard about what I’ve been doing with my fourth graders! I’ve been interested in teaching middle school math for a few years now and was surprised to receive the email. I received glowing letters of recommendation from my current principal, K-5 math coordinator, and my grade-level team leader. I’m hoping my interview goes well and that I’ll be moving up to middle school!
Has anyone made the switch from elementary to middle school? What was the biggest difference for you when you made the move? What was most challenging? Most rewarding?
