I am trying to decide

what grade to teach next? I've taught 9th and 10th grade and will never go back to high school again because of the misbehavior and disrespect in such a toxic environment. I am currently teaching 6th and 7th grade middle school and the behavioral problems are just as bad. I don't know if its because the districts I'm choosing are rural, low performing, and hard to staff with tremendous turnover.

Can anyone provide any insight on teaching 4th or 5th grade? If you teach it, do you like it?

I teach 5th grade. This is my 20th year.

It's the only grade I've taught. I am burning out though. The last 5 or 6 years I have seen an increase in behavior issues and lack of motivation from the students, etc. But I would say teaching 5th grade is probably way better then teaching 6-7th and 9-10th grade! It is all fairly manageable and most of the kids are good.
