Imagine you’ve spent all summer preparing to teach second grade. It’s the position you were hired to teach, and you’re ready to start in a week and a half. Then, you get a call from your principal letting you know that you’ll actually be teaching fourth grade.
Your mind instantly goes into freak out mode. What are you going to do? You aren’t prepared!
For those of you who may be in this situation, deep breath, friend. I’m here to ease your overwhelm and worries. When switching grade levels, a lot of the overwhelm comes from a fear that we have to start all over. The reality is, you actually don’t! Once you've set up one classroom, you have everything you need to set yourself up for success again. I’m going to give you the five key areas of what you really need to set yourself up for success, no matter what grade you're going to be teaching.
