It took me a while to figure out what I liked. I was able to sub for half a year before getting a full time job so I made it a point to bounce around. I took jobs from preschool to a 9th grade algebra (one day in high school was enough for me 😂) and found the range I liked. Maybe see if you can observe in other rooms, work with kids in different grades, and figure out your best teaching style. Some grades need more constant support while others need guidance and time to work on their own. It’ll take some time, but when you know, you know! :)

What age level do you like?

3rd & 4th grade are fun because they are at that age where you can talk to them and they understand what your saying. 5th is a little harder bc they know they are leaving the next year for 6th, they start acting all hormonal and sarcastic. But it’s all rewarding regardless.
