New students, new grade

Students arrive tomorrow, and while its been a good summer, it will also be good to see the kids again. For the first time I won’t be teaching 8th grade. Instead I’ll be teaching 6th grade, along with half of the 7th. I’m used to half the 7th, but I haven’t taught 6th yet, so it’s a new curriculum for me. Instead of genetics, evolution, and chemistry, I’ll be teaching ecology and the cell. It should be fun. There are some 8th graders that I’ll miss not teaching, but I’ll still see them around. I’m not sure if I’ll be involved with the graduating committee this year; it made more sense when I taught the 8th graders. We’ll see in June.
