Theoretically, I get to pick my own lunch time because I create my own schedule of when I pull kids out. However, between working around the classes that were at recess/lunch at the time and my recess/lunch duties, I often found that I really didn't get much of a choice. I scheduled as many days as I could (I believe 3) for me to have lunch 11:30-12:00 because that's when the teachers that are really social/always eat in the lounge happened to have lunch. The other 2, I had to do 11:50-12:20, so I'd catch them for a little bit but after that there usually wasn't anyone to talk to, unless our SLP was there or the perm sub wasn't subbing. This year the first lunch starts at 11, which I think is a bit early, but I won't know anything until I find out what duties I have and things like that.
