Yes, My friend, George, doesn't understand how I taught elementary and I
don't understand how he taught Middle school, and yet when I see him in his
classroom with 6th, 7th, and 8th graders I see a genius, who loves his work
and kids who love what they are doing.

I have to agree with Michal here. Some teachers know they belong in
middle school.
Those who do love it. I've heard too often, when people find out I
taught middle school
for 27 years, Bless you !! I laugh, but I understand, yet I loved
every minute of it. If you
are not cut out for middle school then teach a different level. It's
important to find your
nitch and then work at being the best at what fits you. The kids will
benefit from it.
