I'm the one that posted earlier about missing 3rd grade (I'm a looping teacher, and currently teach 4th). I just found out today that I'll be able to loop back down to 3rd and stay there! I had requested that a few months ago, but was unsure if it would happen due to other teacher's requests. Anyway, just wanted to share my good news with you. Although I'm not currently teaching 3rd, I'm still lurking on this board to get ideas for next year (and sharing ideas from when I taught it last year).
