I'll be teaching sixth grade next year after being out of the classroom for 5 years. I didn't choose this assignment and I have mixed feeling about taking it on. I've never fully taught 6th grade before. Previously, I was a primary teacher. No problem, because sixth grade doesn't start for another 3 months, right?

Wrong! It starts today!

Today? It's only JUNE 2nd! How can that be?

It's right there in those staff meeting notes from yesterday! Darn! I knew....
