Re: Your Weekly Schedule


Date: Sun Oct 10 2004 - 18:01:38 PDT

I only have 3 planning times every week, 1 hour each (1 mon, 1 tues, 1 wed)

I get 30 min of lunch (uniterupted) every day

I teach 5 classes every day, 60-65 min for each K-6, (4 classes on planning
days) 22 classes every week.

I teach 65 min classes in one school K-6 with 5 min in between,for set up
those students I only see every other week.

I teach 60 min classes at my other school K-6 with 5 min in between for set
up, those students I see every single week.

So, in those 3 hours of planning each week I have to plan for both schools on
both schedules. It boiles down to seeing students at one school 15-18 65 min
periods the entire school year. The other school has 60 min of art every
single week. It is so unfair that two elementary schools in the same school
district get wildly different amounts of art class time.
