    Let's see... There are 44 classroom teachers, and 20 support teachers (some full, some part time). There's 1 male classroom teacher (yay me) and 4 support male teachers... 2 PE, 1 SPED, 1 a half-time art teacher.

    We have 14 females (this includes principal, office personnel, paras, everyone) and 7 male. We are actually down one RSP teacher and one principal (the one we have fills the role of a principal, and director, which is her own boss, interestingly), so this ratio could be a bit more even. We're also losing a female teacher in December :(

    It seems to me anyway that males tend to stick with H.S. positions rather than to elementary positions. This could be due to a variety of reasons, including but not limited to: not enough males completing Education degrees (many elementary schools prefer teachers with an education degree vs. only certification), males tend to dominate in various secondary teaching fields such as math, and science, and electives such as technology and r.o.t.c. I also teach secondary and for me anyway it's much the nurturing aspect which exists at the elementary level (which I don't wish to partake in- as much of). With secondary students I can be expected to come in to teach, and challenge my students to the next level without as much of the interference.

    We have 0 male teachers on our staff of about 40 teachers. We're a K-6 school. We used to just have the PE teacher, but he moved back to his home state and was replaced by a female teacher. My P has said that unless their resume/application is truly awful, she will automatically grant any male candidate an interview. I'm on our interview committee and the male candidates we've interviewed have just not been good. My P says she's not willing to hire an inferior candidate just to diversify the staff, which I appreciate. The secondary staff seems to be about 60% female/40% male.

    I work at a small K-12 private school overseas and there are actually more male staff than female.

    I wonder what would encourage more men to teach elementary school. I have seen some really fantastic male teachers of young kids. It's good for young children to see both males and females in teacher roles, too.
