I also wondered what he'd say about grade schoolers. Those, I think, would have to be considered as two groups: K-2 and 3-5.

Middle schoolers, bless their little cotton socks, are just too drama-oriented for me. Kinders are cute, but they have the attention span of gnats.

When I taught full time, I was a traveling teacher, and my caseload included K-12 students. Working with the high schoolers was really enjoyable, because you could relate to them on more of an adult level. They were capable of intelligent discussion and understood subtle humor. That was one-on-one teaching, so I really got to know them, rather than the persona they put forth when they were with a group of their peers. I'm interested to know what others have to say about teaching a classroom full of them. I don't have the nerve.
