Hi there,

I'm quite interested in issues of prep time, because I feel that I never
have enough! At the school where I taught last year, I had 3 prep periods
in a 6 day cycle. This meant every second day, I had last period free,
although this was the shortest period in the day, and meant that I had
about 30 minutes to myself. At this school lunch was 1 hour and I only had
lunch duty for a couple of weeks in the year, so I usually had lunches
free. At the school I am going to be at next year, I do have a 40 minute
prep every day, but lunches are only forty minutes and I have more days of

I would be interested to hear what others have.
