I did it for 4 years. I think you will be great. Just think of them as 7th graders who failed 2 years and you'll be fine. Think of all the books you can make them read and I am sure the will all learn to appreciate literature. haha. I will be teaching all 7th graders this year. Let's make a deal. I will pray for you on a daily basis if you will do the same. Deal?

you can do it. you've done way more scarier things (IMO) like battling the amazing attack pipe in your bathroom... or bathing your dad's cat.

Thanks for the encouragement!
Of course, Kara, I will pray for you. Seventh grade ... geez. That would send me straight to rehab.

I laugh with sympathy. I've been on a roll with the 11s and 12s for a number of years, and would be equally terrified by our 10s.
What grade do you usually teach?
ps We have Smarties in Canada too.

I've been teaching theater arts and freshman study skills (which is basically a reading class) for the past three years. I'll still be teaching those classes, in addition to 9th grade English. It's not so much the content that worries me; it's the fact that there's a huge state-sponsored test at the end of the year and I'm afraid all my kids will fail it, while everybody else's students pass with flying colors!
