Second Grade Teacher

I am a second grade teacher currently! I really do love this age. They are definitely eager to please and sweet except for the very few ones with attitudes and a lot of those are reachable at this age. They can work a lot more independently than 1st graders, but they will need a lot more help than 5th graders. I have been in 2nd for 5 years and this year my kids are needy ! You will be teaching more about how to read than reading to learn and that's a big difference. I think if you go in with expectations of them acting like 5th graders it would be very difficult, but if you go in realizing it is a change and you aren't hard on yourself it will be great. If you do end up moving and need advice, don't forget about this site!
