Middle School Once Again

7th Grade?

Well, here we go again...... I have gone back to teaching ELA; this time with 7th graders. OMG, what have I done? 

First things first, let me go download TikTok.....

I have been out of middle school since 2015, having left for an elementary gig. Then, I left the elementary gig in 2017 to teach at university (still doing that on the side). This year, as I contemplate having 7th graders under my tutelage, I wonder if this old bird still has it? Three weeks in and two students of my 168!!!! are on my last nerve already. 

So..... more reading of middle grade books and less picture picture books (ah -who am I kidding?). 

Bring it tweens!
