    We have 3 including myself. I teach 4th, one other teaches 5th and there is one intervention specialist. I have 4-9 grades license, so I'm right at the bottom of my licensure.

    Out of 30ish of the certified staff, there's 7 of us. 1 PE, 2 Music, 3 in intermediate, and 1 in SPED. Out of the support staff/IA/Para, the only other males are our two custodians.

    There are three men on my team of nine. We have maybe 10-12 in the building, I think.

    We are 6-8, which is still elementary some places.

    I don't think our K-2 building has a single male teacher, but the 3-5 building has maybe 3?

    I don't know the full number of teaching staff at my school, but there are 5 full time male teachers (ESL, classroom, and specials) plus two who I think are part time or go between multiple buildings.

    Both of our second grade teachers are male as well as our music teacher and one of our P.E. teachers. Not a teacher, but our counselor is also male as is our principal.

    We had one in a classroom , but he left. Now it's just one specialist who is assigned to multiple schools, so he isn't really "ours".

    This made me think though about a more troubling trend I see at my school. There are 5 male teachers in my building at least three days a week (or teacher-equivalents, in the case of our tech guy)... we're all white. There are 10 men who work in the building though... the other five are six of our custodians, all are either black or Hispanic. The sixth custodian, our building supervisor, is the only Hispanic woman on staff (other than our translator/parent liaison). My building does not have any Asian employees of any sort, except for the cafeteria staff (all of whom are Asian women), and an assistant principal. We have five black teachers, all women, despite being 40% black. We have no Hispanic instructional staff, even though Hispanics make up 20% of our school population. We have no Asian teachers of any sort, even though 20% of our school is Asian. Whites only make up 20% of the school population, but virtually every teacher in the building is white.

    I'd shudder to think the message that our black and Hispanic students (especially the boys) must think as they look over our staff.
