i am part-time (50%) and the only middle school art teacher in my school. my
first class begins at 11am. i teach three 40 min. classes with one 40 min
prep and a 20 min "lunch". the "lunch" break is only because our school has
incorporated block scheduling (except art and music) and the 20 min overlap
is unavoidable! my day ends at 2:15. the only time i am taken advantage of
is 2:15 - 3:00. because i always stay unitl 3, kids and teachers always
assume 9th period is my "free period". i have been assigned to cover
classes,etc. i am constantly reminding the building principal that i am a
half time teacher and my day ends at 2:15!
