Subject: first year
i am about to begin my first year teaching art. i have
taken a split position at 2 different elementary
schools. students in this district are on a 3-day
rotation with art, music and p.e. when a school's
population exceeds what 1 art/music/p.e. teacher can
handle, the district assigns a new teacher to work
parttime at the school. that parttime person is then
paired with another school that also needs a parttime
teacher. i will be working 2 days at one school and
the 3rd day at another school.
i am not required to teach the fulltime teacher's
lessons at either school. i was thinking it might be
easier to do this, but that would mean i have to do 2
sets of examples, figure out how to teach both sets of
lessons, find time to get 2 different sets of supplies
ready for both schools, etc. it seems like a lot.
does anyone have any words of wisdom or advice. i know
this year is going to be challenging: i just don't
want it to be unbearable.
