What grade should you teach?

You Should Teach Fifth Grade

You are laid back. You have a great sense of humor and figure "kids will be kids."

You have a lot of energy and endurance. It is hard for kids to wear you down.

You're able to roll with a rowdy classroom if you need to, but you also know how to keep students in line.

You are flexible and spontaneous. You can throw the whole plan out the window, if you need to.


  1. You know what grade I should teach? 5th grade. That's because I actually did my student teaching with 5th graders and loved it. And 17 years later I still have yet to be employed in a classroom
    :0( The economy wasn't ripe for teachers when I graduated and I couldn't afford to wait around so now I work in finance - with math all day long - my least favorite subject!

  2. I got 5th grade, too. I wouldn't last for five minutes. Give me high schoolers any day!

  3. I'm with Kwizgiver on this. I think I'd do much better with the older kids.
