    Whether it's the same grade level or specific subject**, how many teachers at your school teach the same thing as you?

    **Like, Algebra I or Chemistry II Honors or something, not generic "Social Studies"

    You can answer more than once if you teach several subjects or grade levels.

    Just curious. Thanks!

    Four, but at my last school when I taught sped, I was the only one. There are pros and cons to both...it's nice having the support of the other teachers, but on the other hand I enjoyed just "running the show" as well in my own department.

    I'm the only Speech-Language Pathologist (SLP) at the two schools I'm at. At my district, most of us are assigned to 2 schools. (I'm considered part-time & still assigned to two.)

    Technically I'm the only 3rd grade special ed. teacher. But I'm in co-teaching, we won't have a 3rd grade self contained this year. We have a pull out special ed teacher who does 3rd-5th though.

    There are 4 other 3rd grade teachers though, including my co-teacher. I answered 1 though, since you said "exact same."

    I think this year I'm one of 4 geometry teachers, though it could easily be more.

    It's a bit unusual to only have one prep. (Though to be honest, I have 3 since I have honors, the regular track, and the advanced frosh class.)

    My department has something like 22 people in it.

    Just me :) I teach English 10, CP 12, AP Lit, and one elective each semester. The other English teacher has English 9, English 11, and English 11/12 survey.

    I am one of three Modern World History teachers. I am the only AP European History teacher, though.

    If you include all tracks (Essentials, CP, and Honors), we have 6 geometry teachers (and then there is a geometry teacher at the middle school as well for the 8th grade geometry students) and 7 alg 2 teachers.

    Exactly the same? I'm the only one, although there are others who overlap parts of my assignment

    There are 6 teachers that teach math at my grade level. Although 2 of us do have a GT section.

    I teach in a 6-8 school. Each grade has 2 language arts and 2 math teachers. There is one science and one social studies teacher per grade.

    I am the only special ed teacher at my school. And really, we don't have any 2 teachers that teach the exact same thing.

    ALLLLL BYYYYY MYYY-SEEEELLLFFF! :lol:

    Not only will I be the only self-contained sped teacher for 6th grade, I will be the only true self-contained sped room in middle school period. The others are just resource or a mix of resource and self-contained.

    I voted for the first option because am the only 6th grade SS teacher at my school; all the sixth graders will have me. However, I teach 2 sections of 7th grade as well so they are split between myself and one other teacher.

    Small school: one teacher per grade K-4 (we each teach one special in grades 1-4 as well), the four 5-8 teachers each have a homeroom and teach one core subject (math, science, language, SS) to all 4 grades, plus some electives.

    The EXACT same thing I do? None. I am the only middle school French Immersion Math teacher at my school. I teach Grades 7, 8 and 9 Math in French. There is one other teacher who teaches 7 and 8, a second grade 8 teacher and two other grade 9 teachers, but they all teach in English. I say I'm the only one because teaching Math in French to Anglophone students comes with its own set of challenges.

    I'm the only one with Advanced. Three of us teach regular.

    (Can I get a woot for only two preps this year?! It's been awhile!)

    There are only 2 of us who teach 1st grade, self-contained, meaning we teach all subjects except PE, Art, Music, and Library. Everything from wipe your nose to zip your pants, to A,B,C. LOL

    My school is Prek-12, so there are other Spanish teachers in the middle and high school. I am the only foreign language teacher for lower grades.

    Last year we were departmentalized, so I was the only one! Now, we are back to self contained.
