I teach 4th grade math and really enjoy it. HOWEVER, I wouldn't take this grade level if I had it to do over again. The stress and pressure of being in a high stakes testing grade is ridiculous. I...

Me Too!

I actually just finished getting my classroom back together today so that I can avoid the school next week (my last week off). I think it would be so much easier to go back to the grind if it didn't...

I currently teach 4th grade math, and I use a frog theme. The kids love it, and have never indicated they think it is too babyish. I think teachers often forget 4th graders are 9, 10 & 11- very young...

I recently moved to 4th grade math, after teaching 2nd. Really wanted to be at the school I moved to, so I took a grade I was unsure of. Honestly, I prefer 2nd. They are so much sweeter and more...

We are allowed to wear jeans any day of the week. However, we have the privilege only if we have donated to various charities throughout the year. Personally I LOVE it!
