Re: How many classes a day do you teach?

I chose 4 to 5, as I'm responsible for 5 classes directly. However, when I don't need the office time, I'm assisting with the 7th/8th grade bands, so 7 classes a day, the maximum I can fit given the offset between our HS and JH schedules. However, I have a great staff, so thankfully the JH bands are covered on days I need to do office work. Very thankful for my team. |
Fellow band directors:
Next week I am going to discuss with admin the possibility of either lightening our class load or hiring an assistant for next school year. Before I do, I would like to see if I am justified in my request. I currently teach 7 classes a day, with an additional STAAR Prep class a few days a week (bringing the total to 8 on those days!)
