After being out of the classroom for years, I am heading back next year. I have narrowed down my options to a 5th grade math teacher position or a 2nd grade general classroom teacher position. Before being out of the classroom, I taught one semester of 2nd grade so although limited, I do have some experience there. What are the differences? I would love to focus on math all day long but I feel my weakest areas are: classroom management and the daily routines that veteran teachers implement. Any input at all would be appreciated. Thank you!
