Hey all, I'm a trainee math teacher, half way through a SCITT at a secondary school. However, Ive been told I'm much better at Year 7 and 8 and not so at 9-11. I love teaching 7s & 8s as I feel that above this the students become rather cocky and I'm not good at controlling their behavior. I can deal with year 8's and all is going well there, but I've been told by my base school to 'think seriously if this trainee course is for you' Should I be sticking out the year when my base school is trying to convince me to leave? (Though I change schools in febuary until easter) Should I be looking at stopping my course now and then next year doing a middle school trainee program? If I completed my secondary SCITT would I be able to teach at a middle school? Would appreciate any advice given (since no one has really given me actual advice - it feels like I'm being pushed to do what others tell me!) Many Thanks!
