Why, Hello there!

Hi there! So nice of you to join us on this super crazy ride through the middle grades!


This blog was born because we all noticed the same thing. There are so many FABULOUS collaborative blogs for the lower grades, there wasn't a whole lot out there in the virtual world for teachers of the middle grades. We want this blog to be a place for you to get inspired and have a laugh or two. Chances are, at some point in your teaching career, you have been asked WHY on earth you teach middle school. We are sure you've heard things such as "Aren't they misbehaved?"... "All those hormones - sheesh!"... "You must be crazy"... "I'd much rather work with the little ones."

Middle school teachers have something special. They have the gift of being able to get through to children who are stuck in that awkward place between childhood and adulthood. We're here for you! All of you who are "In The Middle!"

Our goal is to make this blog relevant to all middle school teachers, regardless of where {or what} you teach, what the demographics of your school are, or how long you've been teaching. We hope you'll find each post inspiring, useful and maybe a little bit funny!

We are all teachers and former teachers who have survived or are currently surviving teaching middle school students.

  1. I'm so glad I found this blog! I am about to make the leap from lower school to middle school and found myself with little guidance. Thank you for all the awesome advice and encouragement!
