How many students do you have?
This year, my smallest class is 40 and my largest is 51.
Are you Secondary Education? I have 22 Third Graders. The biggest class I've ever had.
I teach high school.
My second year teaching, I had 30 first graders.
I have 21 second graders... that's the maximum in our district.
I see about 160 students every day.
I have 7 Fourth Graders. Right now I have 9 enrolled for next year. Our class max is 15.
I teach three blocks: 32 students, 36 students, 38 students.
too many !!
about 350 in total that I teach
25 is the Maximum in our District.
My classes range from 15 - 25. High school.
I would be in heaven........
120 over the course of 7 periods.
I'm jealous, we don't have a real maximum, just a 'recommendation'. I have 27 in grade 1 this year.
This year 19 in 3rd Grade .... Last year 25 in 3rd Grade... next year who knows.... where # or grade level is concerned (am hoping to hear something soon) .....
My smallest class has 20. My largest class has 27. I have six groups of students per day. This year we have a smaller group, so class sizes are smaller than usual.
Believe it or not, that's a hard question.
I have 141 sophomoresevery day. I picked up a daily frosh Algebra class in November, that's 35 more.
Then I have 3 SAT prep classes I see one period a week. Each has about 35 kids in it.
And when I picked up the Algebra class, I dropped 2 more SAT prep classes.
My homeroom has 38, and there are 36 kids in the study hall I have 5 days out of every 6.
I've got 20 third graders...
I student taught in the fall in a class of 34 sixth graders - all 3 sixth grades (self-contained) have 34 kids.
38 in each of my 3 senior classes; this year I have one unusually small class of 12 freshmen and an intervention class of 28.
I have 8 sixth graders, 13 seventh graders, and 15 eighth graders. That's all of them!
I teach high school. My largest class is 29, my smallest is 8 (advanced placement though).
I have 24 first graders this year. Next year I probably will have 30.
33 2nd graders + 4 Special Ed with no para!
I have 18 kindergartners this year.
Next year I will have 18 or 25 depends on if we hire another teacher. 95% sure we are hiring one more...just waiting on the official word!

24 in my pre-K class
Do you have a Para?
About 804 I'm a Specials teacher.
My biggest class is 2/3 Challenge with 35 students. My smallest is one of our 5th grade classes with 22.
15 fifth graders. It will never happen again. Total fluke, and they let it stand.
However, they are a handful anyway. One had a court date for an out-pf-school illegal activity yesterday. After all his previous court dates, he's come to school in the afternoon. This time he didn't, and he didn't show up today. I wonder if he is at the youth jail. Principal is calling about it in the morning. Terrific.
Another came to school a month ago with marijuana ashes mixed in with cigarette tobacco. He was showing it around. Wonderful.
Another brought his brother's cell phone to school to show his friends on the bus. The brother's girlfriend had "sexted" pictures of herself to the brother. Lovely.
Another is bi-polar. But he really is doing fine. The medicine wears off during PE at the end of the day, so the ride home on the bus is dicey, but I don't have to deal with that. Sweet.
One psycho mom. One "don't mess with me" girl.
But the rest of the class is really fine. It sure is easy to deal with the kids who need extra attention when you only have 15.
Next year, I will have 30. Quite a jump.

I currently have 24 second graders (25 is the max this year). Next year, class size will increase to 28 students in K-3.
I hope you've got a large room, TeacherApr!!!
My largest class is 29 for sixth grade math, my smallest class is 10 (but it's a remediation course).
It'll probably be closer to 32 next year.
I've got 19 first graders. 21 is the most I've ever had in 8 years. 20 is always our average but we've been told to expect bigger classes next year. I was thinking around 25, but now I think it may only be 22ish. How in the world do you guys do such large classes with these little ones. I just don't see how I could provide what they need with that many!
I have 29 4th graders.

That's alot of 4th Graders. The 4th Grade classes at my school only range from 20-23 students. We have 4 Fourth Grade classes.
The state allows 32, I think. It keeps changing. We have 4 classes, too. I started the year with 27 but I'm at 29 now. It looks like we'll all start with 28 or 29 next year...with 5 classes. I don't know what we'll do if we have another influx of students. My room barely holds 29, I don't think I can shove 32 in there.

My largest class has 36 students (Gr. 12 French Immersion), and my smallest class is Gr. 10 Phys Ed which has 20 girls. I teach high school, so my numbers tend to be fairly high...
