Re: Is it just me?( a short rant by veteran teacher) - Parent Involvement/ Linda

Oh, I knew the minute I pushed send that I would not get any sympathy
for the 14 kids part! My sympathy to you with anything over 20. I am
not complaining about the class size at all! I just meant that for what
I am doing I need an extra set of eyes to make sure it is safe. My
lower school classes have 20 kids. Our upper and middle school classes
have max of 16, but it's usually more like 12-14. Makes me really want
to teach middle school full time! Last year I taught
etching to a high school class for a few weeks. Only 8 kids!!!!!
Unbelievable. Since most of my classes are Lower School, I chase 20
little ones most of the day. It's backwards! There should be smaller
classes when they are young and can't sit still!!!
