I can't imagine being in your situation, especially starting at a new school.
 I agree with what everyone has written. One year I taught Drawing and
Painting 2 with Printmaking with a total enrollment of about 25 and it was
extremely difficult. I gave assignments and worked with each of the two
classes every other day. Of course I would give help to anyone who needed it
but the emphasis was on a particular class that day. The students felt
frustrated by the situation. I just don't know how you could handle 43
students in 4 different classes. Speak to your principal and union rep. My
school has a maximum student number per class the guidance counselors must
stick to. Sometimes I've allowed one or two over but it's my decision as the
teacher to approve this.

Good luck.
