Now the Language Arts teacher I'm taking the place of is being moved down to sixth grade. All I'll say is she presents herself very convincingly and in doing so has a great deal of power when it comes to getting her way. I'd love to say more but I'll leave it at that. So the problems I see arising are when she finds out what I'm teaching (I'm not going to get into how) and she doesn't approve of my methods. We're like worlds apart, but I already have my 7th / 8th grade team backing me, I'm not only writing lesson plans with goals, objectives, and assessments, but I'm also demonstrating how each unit I create focuses on the GLEs. So I plan to fight her tooth and nail if she tries to get in my way. She only has one year of experience more than me, but she's a very forceful, convincing person.
