1.) What do you teach? (Elementary, Middle School or High School) Kindergarten

2.) How long have you been a teacher? 11 years

3.) What are your official contract hours? (For example: 7:15-3:15) 7:40-3:30

4.) When do you arrive at school? between 7:00-7:20, depending oh how slow my turtle (DS) is moving. He is soo not a morning person.

5.) When do you leave school? after 5p.m. but I tutor from 3:30-5:00 M-R.

6.) How much planning time do you spend on the weekends? Planning: none. My sanity requires that my lesson plans & copies are done for the next week before I leave on Friday. Depending on what my week looks like I may bring planning/grading home during the week. I can spend 2-3hours during the week planning/grading at home. I do a working lunch. I spend every minute at school working. I do wonder sometimes if I should go eat with the others in the teachers lounge though.

Middle/High School English
1.) What do you teach? (Elementary, Middle School or High School) Middle and High School

2.) How long have you been a teacher? This is my first year!

3.) What are your official contract hours? (For example: 7:15-3:15) 7:30-3:05 (school hours are 8-2:35)

4.) When do you arrive at school? Usually about 7:25-7:30, I'm just so NOT a morning person!

5.) When do you leave school? It depends on the day. Some days I'm out of there right at 3:05, other days I stay until 5:30 or later. Sometimes the newer teachers will all go out to dinner so we'll stay later and grade and work. That's about one day a week though. I would say normally I'm out of there anytime between 3:15-4

6.) How much planning time do you spend on the weekends? Sunday nights I usually type up all of my lesson plans so I work for 1-2 hours.

I will say this is skewed even as a new teacher because I have 80 minutes of prep a day and I really make the most of that!

If I would quit changing grades every 3 or 4 years, I would probably be able to cut back on the hours, but I like the change.

Elementary special ed
2.) How long have you been a teacher?
2 years
3.) What are your official contract hours? (For example: 7:15-3:15)
8-4, kids attend 8:30-4:00.
4.) When do you arrive at school?
8-not a morning person so I don't get there until I have to. 1 day a week I have to arrive at 6:30 for PD and another day of the week I have to arrive at 7:00 for data team or staff meeting.
5.) When do you leave school?
I try my hardest to get out by 5. Unless there's some activity going on, I typically don't leave any later than 5:30. The earliest I leave is about 4:30.
6.) How much planning time do you spend on the weekends?
I've gotten way better at this. It really depends on the week and how much I have to do. This weekend probably 3 hours total. Some weekends I just have to spend about 20-30 minutes catching up on e-mails. Due to the nature of my job, things are always changing and I can't plan way ahead over the summer-otherwise I would do that.


Thanks!
Ok!

These are my answers for this year, it was much more time in the past and definitely before I had a baby. I learned to streamline my plans and time use when I started grad school and got pregnant.
