    Alissa,
    Hello! Congrats on your position! I'm a K-3 SAGE teacher and can probably tell you anything you need to know...or at least I'll try! Please email if you have specific questions! SAGE (in Wisconsin where I live) is basically like a classroom reduction teacher in the areas of language arts and math. There has to be 1 teacher to every 15 children in those areas of instruction. So, it can be taught where there are two teachers team teaching. Or, the SAGE teacher can just pull out groups during reading and math times to lower the class size. However, some schools are set up so that the SAGE teacher gets her own room and has no more than 15 kids all day. It all depends on the way your school is set up. I am working in 2 different schools, so I have a little different set up also. I will be teaching Math to two groups of first graders in the am and math and reading to Kindergarten at a different school in the pm. SAGE has specific goals that need to be met for each grade level and has testing that must be done so that you can prove that it's working. Here is a website that you can check out to tell you a little more about the SAGE goals etc... http://www.dpi.state.wi.us/oea/sage/
    I hope this helps...there is a lot more I can tell you if you need to know, just post or email me!
    Jennifer
