Teaching English to teaching Tech, quite a jump. Sounds like a great way to freshen up your job. How many students at the school and what is the grade range?
Freshened up, but is also seriously wearing me out, too. It's good, though. It's just putting me into a position of feeling like an overwhelmed first year teacher for the first time in a while.
We have something like 650 6th-8th grade students. That's down from 2017-18 by around 90 kids, people are moving to adjacent cities like Avondale or Goodyear. It's the roughest neighborhood I've taught in, and the sense is people that can leave are doing so. I rep these kids, though. They need a chance, and I think this tech lab is opening a few of their eyes. Just gotta keep grindin'.
