Placement Switching

I've moved on from my elementary placement into a middle school math placement.  Less than a week in, one of my own children had to stay home from school.  I'm feeling a lot of frustration about it.  I realize that my kid has no control over this.  But I was just starting to do some planning with my new cooperating teacher and she's giving me the chance to start teaching this week--IF I can get to school!

In any event, I like the teacher and the school.  This placement is in a private school, so there are few discipline problems and a higher achievement expectation.  Even the kids who are labeled as "struggling" are taking normal grade-level coursework.  Everyone else is a grade or more beyond what's required at the local public schools.  It's interesting.
