No--no one has mentioned anything to me about teaching 6th grade next year.
If for some reason I have to teach 6th grade next year, though, I'll probably see if I can pair up with another teacher and s/he can teach math/science and I can teach language arts/social studies. When I taught 6th grade, I only taught language arts/social studies, so I know nothing about 6th grade math/science (obviously, though, I'd be willing to learn if I get placed in 6th grade).
My preference is to stay put in 2nd grade. We all know, however, that the best-laid plans of mice and men often go awry!
