I teach 27 classes a week, down from 29 last year. At my home school(4
days) it is 2 days with 6/ 45 min classes and my other school is 1 day
with 5/ 5omin classes. Some of the elementary art teachers in my
district teach fewer classes a week and thus have more plan. I don't
mind my schedule but love the days when I have an actual plan period to
make examples etc. I basically have classes from 8:20-10:45 and then my
next class is 12:05-2:30. After a quick lunch, I clean-up from the morn
and get the supplies ready for the afternoon. I don't think of that time
as planning. It seems like I have alot of time at lunch, but it flies.
This year I don't have lunch or recess duty. Some of the teachers are
mad at me for that. I do 20 min of morning duty 4 days and a recess at
my other school on the day that I'm there. We arbitrarily cut class
time to 45 min at my school because of the number of classes and we
weren't getting any plan time. Some say that the 5 min in between
classes is my plan time...Some of the schools teach kind. art and some
don't I have been working to get some consistancy in the scheduling and
programs and budgets. There is still a mentality that I am there for
the teachers to have plan time. Needless to say , that bugs me. I'm
very grateful that in addition to my lunch time I have 2 45 min that are
plan time, in years past I would have a class rotated in there, but not
this year. Sorry this is so long. It struck a nerve I guess. betsy
