How many hours do you spend with your students. I am with my students for five hours a day. This doesn't include the 40 min prep, or the 25 mins in the morning before they all arrive. The first arrives at 8:10 last arrives at 8:35. Also, doesn't include dismissal time first to leave is at 2:50 last to leave is at 3:10. I have to spend at least 8 hrs at school a day. I am usually there closer to 9 or 10 hrs. Seems horrible that out of the ten hrs there only 4hrs and 40 mins is actually with students in the classroom.
