After much thought, I think I'm going to switch schools next year. The position open would be for 6th grade literature. However, I teach K right now That's a huge jump! Anyone make a huge switch like that? I've only taught 2nd and K.

Not tying shoe laces is really exciting for me! haha

...as a sub and special ed teacher. Kindergartners were the most draining. Found my niche in middle school. Spent 15 years in 8th grade and 2 in 7th. I'm subbing again, mostly at my middle school. I never thought I'd say this, but I ADORE sixth graders. They are funny, childlike, and yet independent (mostly). There is a little drama beginning about now. The boys are still like really big kindergartners (continues at least through 8th grade), except they can tie their own shoes. The girls are a little more mature. I would say to go for it! All but one person I know who transferred to middle school from elementary has loved it. Good luck in your decision. I never thought I'd like middle school students, but I rarely sub in any other grade levels but 6-8.
