Well, after receiving an email yesterday that 4 positions were being cut from the school, I knew that this could happen. However, the cuts didn't affect my grade at the time. Not sure how it worked out the way it did, but there were 5 second grade classrooms, and not enough kids. So they were going to cut one 2nd grade teacher. However, they've decided to still do that, but bump a second grade teacher down to my first grade class.
This seems so counter productive school that the district has "redesigned," so that the school can succeed. Instead of just disturbing part of second grade, my first graders are going to have a new teacher too. I'm a strong believe that stability plays a huge factor in the success of these students. Now sure, from time to time teachers are pregnant, or ill, but why disrupt them if not necessary?
Anyway, it is completely out of my control, and I'm sure that a new, and better door will open. I will now be a 2nd grade teacher at another school across town. I teach first grade through Tuesday, and then on Wednesday, bam, I'm a 2nd grade teacher. Needless to say, this will be challenging week.
