The Spring/Summer Teacher Shakeups have started early this year with a surprise lead from Fluvanna Middle School. Yesterday a number of teachers were individually called before all 3 building administrators and informed of changes to their subject and/or grade level assignment for next year. This might be considered business as usual at the elementary level, regardless of how much personal money teachers spend on grade specific materials, how much personal time they invest in grade specific instruction, and how much professional respect they’d feel if asked about personal strengths or preferences. It’s so discouraging to see the middle school dealing with this now. I’ve heard a theory that the older the student, the more respect for the teacher.
