Time Between Classes???
- We have ZERO time between classes. All specials are on a cart, and
classes end and start at the same time. For example, 1st grade art
runs from 9:30 until 10:15. Second grade art runs from 10:15 until 11.
I must go from 1st grade to 2nd grade in ZERO minutes. The 1st grade
teacher doesn't return to her room until 10:18, thinking "no big deal"
but then I show up to 2nd grade at 10:20, and have lost time that
could be spent working. I also lose time at the end of a period
because I have to clean up early in order to be ready to get out that
door as soon as the teacher gets back, because they want to start back
as soon as they walk in, even in they are early! At the end of the day
I lose about 10 minutes of work time because my final class gets out
at 3:15. The students are also released from school at 3:15. So I have
to allow them time to get their things ready, get their classroom jobs
done, and get them lined up to go out the door.
We have complained, but to no avail.
Thanks for letting me vent!
