    I am in my second year of teaching 3rd grade. I taught 5th grade for 4 years. I taught 6th grade for five years before that. I have had a huge adjustment in getting used to the younger children. I love it and they are so refreshing. Age 8/9 is the greatest age. they are still so innocent, yet they can do anything. The curriculum in third grade is much harder because everything in 3rd grade is brand new, while 5th and 6th graders take everything in stride. I love 3rd and I do not regret the switch. I was feeling stressed out with the Alabama WRiting Assessment, and S>A>T> testing ,and the interruptions on my 5th graders time.
