I am 100% committed to finding a middle school or elementary position for next year. Even if it means I need to move. I need to do what's best for my family - and being absent 70+ hours a week, being stressed while at home while thinking about the next football game/marching contest/UIL rehearsal - I'm done.
Those stresses remain at the MS level - the ones regarding UIL - but the level of expectation is much, much different. You don't need to do Grade 4 or Grade 5 literature with a middle school unless you're trying to prove something - which I won't be.
I love high school. I love teaching high school. But I love my family more.
