Encouragement

I'm not making a huge jump. I have a friend who teaches fifth, and she doesn't dare to sing or do chants/rhymes. Which made me curious about 4th. Thank you for your kind replies.

Questions at the end of the interview

I have no clue what to ask at the end. Asking about professional development is redundant, as many times it is stated during the introduction on the interviews.

So true! Seen it happen in my building. New teachers are very controllable and are basically like puppets,that's what they want. Of course our union isn't doing anything about it. How sad!
