I teach in El Paso and my limit is at 33 this year. Last year it was 32 (I
thought!). When I said, Hey...last year it was 32, they said, Oh no, it was
33. It is very difficult even to just get around to everyone in a 50 minute
class (especially with attendance, directions, special ed kids, etc etc etc).
In El Paso, we have such overcrowding, I see little hope of it getting any
better. Let me know what you are able to achieve. I used to teach in Virginia
and I would fuss and fume if my classload got over 21 (sometimes it went to
23). In retrospect, I laugh at how I thought my classes were too large there.
