I am going into my second year at my first school. We have 120 teachers for 2,000 students. I found a group of English teachers that I am friends with, but with having 120 teachers I don't even know everyone. Is that normal? For a high school is this large?

I know a few high schools that are about the same size in my area. My school is very small. It is a K-12 Catholic school and each grade has about 35 kids. We have one teacher per grade K-6 and two or three teachers per subject area 7-12. Not sure exactly how many teachers are on staff. I think we have around 30 teachers.

Wowsers, 120 teachers! I work at a charter middle school and we only have about 20 teachers for 220 students.

My school is small, hehe. I teach at a K-2 building and we have 16 grade-level teachers, 3 Specials teachers, 3 Special Education teachers, Librarian, 2 Title I, and 1 Counselor. ...everybody knows pretty much everyone else, though grade level teams are closer, obviously.

There are 17 at my school...6 Lower School teachers, 7 Specialist teachers, and 4 Upper School teachers. We'll have about 110 students next year in 9 grade levels.

I don't know many people either and my school is about the same size. It is weird to me because I have worked in much larger places and have known well more than 120 names within the first month of working. But with teaching I spend my day with the students, not the teachers. I am much more isolated.

My school is pre-K to 12th grade. In the elementary school, we have 2 teacher per grade level and the various specialists - PE, reading specialist, etc. I think all together, we have around 45 teachers on staff pre-k through 1th grade. We have one librarian, an elementary couselor, a high school counselor, and basically two teachers per subject 7th - 12th grade. We do have three english teachers in the hs/jr high.

I've worked at my school for five years and there are many times at staff meetings when I see teachers who are completely unfamiliar to me. Some of them must be new (we have pretty high turnover) but not all of them are. It can be awkward. Add to that the fact that my last name is long and hyphenated and no one uses the full version--everyone calls me by a nickname. People recognize my name in emails where it's the real version but don't connect it to the nickname. Also awkward.

We have 10 lower hall teachers, 5 upper hall teachers, 6 specialists and an enrichment teacher. The LD teacher, speech path, Title 1, etc. are hired part time by the local school district. We have about 250 students.

In the school where I was an aide, we had about 60 teacher for about 700 students. I'm in a small school now and there are about 25 teachers for 250 students.

School of just under 600 middle school students, and we have 20 content teachers (math, science, social studies, and language arts), 3 full time specialists (art, choir, and band), 2 P.E. teachers, and 2 Special Education teachers. We have 1 part time specialist who is there for one class period to teach Spanish to our 8th graders as an elective, and several of us teachers already mentioned will be teaching an elective for one or 2 periods during the day. Oh, and our Life Skills teacher for the more developmentally delayed students who need more intense services than a regular classroom (or "regular special ed.") can provide. Unless I am forgetting someone, that's it. We, of course, have pull out services for ELL and speech therapy and occupational therapy, and we have our librarian, but I can't think of any other teachers. So, 27 for the majority of our student population. 28 counting life skills.

Maybe about 45 teachers in my school, including a preK, K-4, special area teachers, sped teachers...between 500-600 kids.

We have about 65 teachers for 800 students (high school). I was new last year, so it took me a long time to recognize everyone's face. I finally got it and now we've had a lot of turnover with the coaches. We definitely aren't all close, though. The coaches' wives (a lot of them) are all very close, and the tech teachers are all close. I kinda stay on my own.

At my middle school of 800-900 boys (6th-8th), 52 teachers (three are part-time), 6 Master Teachers (each teach one enrichment class), 14 ECE teachers (they either do collaborations or self-contained), 3 EBD assistants, and 6 ESL teachers.

My K-5 school has about 450 students. We have 17 classroom teachers, 3 specials teachers (phy. ed., music, art) 2 sp. ed. teachers, 1 speech, 1 social worker. We also have self contained programs with 3 teachers for autism and EBD.

We had 11 full time teachers this past year. This coming year, we will be a k-8 and our school has grown a bit, so we will have about 20 full time and a couple part time. I really like how small our staff is. We get along really well and we're really close. I do think an advantage of a large staff though is that out of that many people, there is bound to be a couple that you just "click" with and become friends with. On a small staff, it's kind of hit or miss- if you don't really click with those people there isn't anyone else to hang out with. I just lucked out in that most of our staff members are close friends of mine.

That is true when I used to work at Disney I knew a lot of people on a first name basis. Now I know 180 kids on a first name basis. Well at least their first names.

We have close to 2400 students and about 100 teachers. We're very compartmentalized, and when we get together for full staff meetings a few times a year, there are always people I don't recognize. I don't even know the people in my own department who have rooms in a different building very well.

We have between 150-225 students per grade level in three grades. Each grade level has two math teachers, two language arts teachers, one science teacher, one social studies teacher, and one special education teacher. We also have teachers for math RTI, reading RTI, speech, FMD special education, computers, technology, pe, computers, art, chorus, band, and library. I haven't met--or even seen--the new band director this year. She was hired after school began. I'm not even sure if she's bee at school yet.

Our 4 traditional high schools have about 200 teachers for about 4000 kids. My school has 17 teachers for 200 kids.

We have about 80 teachers for 1000 students. Some years, if there are a lot of new teachers, it takes some time to get to know them, especially if they're in a different department. There are some teachers that I don't see on a regular basis because they're in different parts of the building, so we don't talk much. I help facilitate the new teacher meetings at my school, though, so I always try to make myself available to anyone new in case they need help with something.

Not sure about the whole district. We have 3 buildings and about 700 students. In my building (Prek-2nd) we have 20 teachers. 12 grade level 2 title one (one of whom is shared between buildings) 2 special education 1 counselor (shared) 3 specials (shared)
