    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.

    I don;t have lunch at school until 1:20. I naturally get hungry at around 11:00. I just bring a little snack to eat during my planning.

    11 am .... the good thing the first week the kids are back we will be focusing on routines etc in the cafeteria so I doubt there will be much chance to eat. But then the next chance wont be until 2pm so that is also a bad thing....

    We eat at 10:45. During the school year I wake up between 5:00-5:30AM and I usually make a light breakfast. Because I eat so early I'm hungry by the kids lunch time.

    I wont know my lunch time until planning days next week. I always have cafeteria duty, so I have to wait and see when I'm scheduled for my 30 minutes in there. I'll either eat before duty (my preference) or after it (hard to get food from the kitchen if needed b/c they close up at 12:30). I'm always starving by lunch no matter the time!

    I eat/drink breakfast around 7-7:30 while commuting. Last year I had duty from 12:10 - 12:40 with my lunch 12:45-1:15. I liked that this schedule let me pull kids up until their lunch time, but it kept me from pulling after their lunch for a bit.

    We have one cafeteria for K-12, so we have staggered lunches. HS students eat at 10:30, MS eat at 11:00, then elementary starts at 11:30 (Kind), 11:40 (1st), 11:50 (2nd), 12:00 (3rd), 12:10 (4th), and 12:15 (5th) with kitchen doors closed at 12:30.

    Last year I ate lunch at 10:30. Some of the kids brought snacks for the afternoon.

    This year I don't have to take kids to lunch. I'm excited. I've been eating around 11:00.

    My lunch will be at 12:50. However, I will be on cafeteria duty during this time, so we'll see if that's really when lunch gets eaten! :)

    I have an 11:00 lunch this year and I'm ecstatic! Last year I had lunch at 10:12 am!!

    My worst year was when I had first specials at 8:15 am and last lunch at 12:50 pm. Talk about a loooong day.

    Anyhoo, I always nibble at lunch and then eat when the kiddos leave.

    When I taught 2nd grade, my lunch was always 11:20-12:10.

    Now that I'm teaching middle school, my lunch is from 1:10-2:00!

    My body is going to have to get used to a late lunch!

    I subbed for several teachers in the same building who had their lunch at 9:30AM during 2nd period, with first period being their planning period. 3rd pd through 8th they had classes/study hall/duty. The school day ran from 8AM-3:30PM.

    For you teachers who are eating lunch around the 10:00 time, I feel for ya! I'm sorry that you have to eat so early. Are you waking up around 5, though? (That's when I wake up.) Maybe if you just have a light breakfast/coffee around then, you'll be hungry by the time "lunch time" rolls around.
