    Just for curiosity sake:
    What grade do you teach, and how many students are in your class?

    This year I'm teaching sophomores and Juniors.
    A typical class: about 38.

    I have a total of 9 classes (4 each day + 6 that rotate in) plus 2 sets of study halls that also alternate in.

    So total number of names I need to learn: close to 440.

    I'm sooo lucky this year. I teach 6th grade resource, and I have a total of 12 students!!! 12!! Last year I had a case load of 36 and taught in a full inclusion situation with 30-37 kids per class. I teach in a K-8 rural school, and the gen-ed teachers have about 14-17 students per class. Heaven!

    I teach 6 sections. 4 sections are mostly freshmen and 2 are mostly sophomores, but I also have juniors and seniors.

    My classes range in size from about 40 to about 50. My classes are smaller this year than last year because this year I sold a prep, resulting in my students getting space out across 6 periods instead of just 5.

    4th grade inclusion I have 24 right now I believe but school hasn't started yet so that number could go either way. My fingers are crossed for no more than 24 though! Of that about 12 would probably be special ed. I hope to get a class list on Tuesday. School for the kids starts Thursday.

    I am teaching 3rd grade and am very happy to say that I have 14 students expected to come in this Tuesday.

    This is a huge thrill for me, because I have never had less than 30 in all my years of teaching!

    That number may change, but right now I am walking in the clouds.

    I teach math and science to 4th and 5th grade. My 4th grade has 23, and my 5th grade has 18. My numbers are significantly lower than the other teachers who are pretty much maxed at the state cap of 28 b/c I am in a portable and short on space.

    Third grade, 14 students, at a parochial school.

    I got 3 new students, and was glad that 2 were boys, as there were only 2 boys originally!
