Well, they turned out to be fantastic. I knew a lot of them as fifth graders last year, and they were much better behaved as sixth graders. It helped that we had a lot to do in the class, and that...

Elementary sub, going to middle school

I usually sub in elementary, and feel very comfortable with grades 1 through 5. But tomorrow, I'm going to be subbing in middle school.
