I am a teacher at a k-8 school and I am currently teaching 7th and 8th grade science which I love. I was very hesitant when the principal first asked me to take on Science and these grade levels. I have worked in kindergarten and third grade classrooms and loved being with the younger students... I was afraid of the big kids, their attitudes, hormones, etc. but I have found that I love it!! I am able to do so much with them academically and they work well independently. I have recently been offered to teach 3rd or 4th grade. I am familiar with the third grade classroom as I was a teacher's assistant for two years. I am not as familiar with fourth grade . If anyone has taught both grades and can enlighten me on some differences that would be much appreciated. Thanks.
