I am a second year 5th grade teacher. I didn't choose to be a fifth grade teacher, it was the only thing available for me at the time. During these past two years I've realized how very difficult it is to tackle all the 5th grade standards, especiall the math content standards. Is there anyone out there who doesn't think that teachign 5th and even 6th grade is an almost impossible task. Let me know how long it took you to feel sane in teaching 5th grade.
During these past two years I've signe don to all the math professinal development possible. SOmetime the more I learn the more I realize how very impossible it it to "do it all!"
