This year we'll have 6 teachers and 144 2nd graders (at most recent count.) Last year we had 7 teachers and 132 kids, so this is a bit of a change. I went in to set up my room yesterday. No matter what I do, I cannot fit 24 desks and still keep my teacher desk, so I asked my custodians to take it away. I'm actually pretty happy about it. In the 5 years I've taught, my teacher desk has done nothing but hold things I'm trying to hide and been a place to stash papers Hopefully this will force me to be more organized.

Over half of kindergarten students register the week before school starts, so we never know for sure until the last minute, but we have 6 teachers and about 125 students.

I'm thinking about getting rid of my teacher desk too. I'll be at a new school this year. There are 7 teachers in my grade-level. I'm not sure how many students. Last year, I had 3 teachers in my grade-level.

Our numbers as of June were 144 students for 6 teachers in third grade. We always get up to 20 move ins....hope not this year. I hate having to hire a teacher after school starts.

This year my grade will be the biggest in the school (barring any changes in kindergarten based on enrollment.) There will be 6 classes (7 teachers- one co-teaching class) and roughly 145 students.

Last year we had 8 teachers and about 180 students in our 5th grade. I co taught with about 32 students. This year I am moving specialties and will have about 6 students and 2 paras.

Last year there was 1 teacher and 26 students in third grade. Luckily this year, we have 2 teachers and 32 students in third... At least unless we lose some students (praying for roll to stay the same or increase in numbers!).

This year, my site will have four 2nd grade teachers and 96 students (24 per class). If anyone enrolls late, they'll be "overflowed" to another site since every class is already full.

We have had 6 teachers per grade level the last 10 years with numbers ranging from 84-122 students. This year with only 84 students moving up to 4th grade and a 4th grade teacher moving to Africa, there will only be 5 teachers. In third grade we will have 6 teachers and probably about 90 kids. The largest class I have ever had was 20 kids. I usually average 16-18 kids. Yes I know how lucky I am.

We have four gen ed 7th grade teachers and 160ish students. 39/40 in every class! We will also have 2 SPED teachers. One push in/inclusion teacher and myself. I will have up to 14 students.

Usually 5 teachers per grade level, with 90-110 students per grade. This year 4th grade will have 4 teachers and about 90 students, as of last count.

Wow, I wish I had lower class sizes! When I was in a grade level at my school, we had 6 teachers and about 196 students. I had 32 students. Two weeks ago my former grade level was at 33 students each. I'm sure it's even higher now since it's closer to the beginning of the year. We always get several last minute. They're considering adding another class but our numbers are lower overall for the school, so I don't know if they will.

I teach 5th grade. Last year we had 6 teachers and 119 students, so class sizes of 19-20. Nice! This year we'll have 5 teachers and about 120 students, so 24-25 per class. Our district in general tries to keep the elementary class sizes at 24. The 19-20 we had last year was a fluke, though the year before I had 22, and the other 5th grade teachers had 20-22, so that too was smaller than average for the district.

There are nine fifth-grade teachers, three of which teach Gifted. The other six teach the magnet students because we are a magnet school. As for students, I would predict somewhere around 180-200. There are up to 22 students per intermediate class.

There are 2 grade 1 classes, 2 grade 2 classes and a 1-2 class. There are about 50 grade 1s and 50 grade 2s.

Three straight fourth-grade classes, each with about 33 students. One 4/5 combination class and I believe she has 15 fourth-graders? So, about 114 fourth-graders total.

In early June, my principal was looking at 60 kids and 3 teachers. Twenty students in each class would have been awesome. However, I'm expecting an influx in students as the state of Missouri just upheld a law that students from unaccredited districts could transfer to an accredited district. We are just a hop, jump, and a skip away from one of those districts. I'm expecting around 25 kiddos in my class. I won't know for sure though until a few days before school starts. Even then I've been told to expect last minute changes that first week of school.

I got rid of my teacher desk this year, too. I've been in my room quite a bit this summer, and so far I'm loving not having a desk! We have 5 sections of 2nd grade (116 kids). My principal keeps asking for a 6th section, but they keep saying no.

In years past in fourth grade I typically had around 24 students. Moving to second this year, and right now we are at 3 teachers with 19 each.

I am at 21 right now, but it could change. We currently have 3 classes in 2nd grade and about 63 kids.

We are still enrolling every day. Last I knew I was the only 3rd grade teacher with 18 kids. We're hoping to have 2 teachers by Labor Day.

Last year I taught first grade. We had 7 teachers with about 110 kids. This year I will be teaching kinder. We will have 7 teachers. Last year when they had 6 teachers they were maxed at 22 per class. That class is moving up to first grade and because they are departmentalizing they will have 22 per class again.

Registration is on Monday, but based on K Round-Up numbers we were between 45-50 students and 3 teachers. It was awesome getting rid of my teacher desk...I used a computer table instead (no drawers to shove random stuff in)! This year I think I'll have to get rid of my computer table as well though because I don't think I'll have room.

I got rid of mine too and used my computer desk as well. I can´t get rid of the computer desk because I absolutely need it for the computer, but the room looks so much more spacious without a teacher´s desk in there.

I just found out today that our fourth grade classes are at 33 and 34 students each...this is not good.

These high numbers are just awful. And the idea of not having a desk...no way. It gives me a rush of anxiety just thinking about it.

One of the worst parts about having 34 students in the classes is that my school loops. So the next year the teachers will still have 34 students, PLUS any students who transfer to our school for 5th grade. So they will most likely have 35, 36, 37, etc. for 5th grade.

Last year we had six teachers and each of us had about 22 students. This year, I'm told we'll be losing one teacher. Large class sizes are such a disservice to the kids! Two years ago we had much bigger classes (about 31 - 33 each) and my whole team was exhausted, burnt out and stressed. Last year, even though we had a few difficult kids, having less kids in general made it bearable.
