The master schedule for next year is locked in. Which means, short of any dire circumstances, all the teachers know what classes they are going to teach and which period.
I couldn’t have asked for a better schedule. Actually, it’s pretty much the schedule I did ask for.
All 3 math classes are in the morning, when the kids are still relatively fresh, sedate and most inclined to be willing to learn and cooperate.
My 3 keyboarding classes, which is more of an activity based class, are in the afternoon. A much better class to have after they’ve had a lunch of sugar and caffeine.
Having the math classes all together and the keyboarding classes all together also means that I only have to change classrooms once a day. This year it was math-keyboarding-math-keyboarding-math, 4 class switches a day. Bleah!
Bonus points – my prep period is the period lunch is done in. Which means I get to go to first lunch or second lunch, which ever one I’m in the mood for. It also means that I have an hour and a half break at once, I could actually go out for lunch once in a while. Wahoo!
