I have been teaching for 3 years and have noticed a decrease in these benefits at my school. I know money is getting tight in education all over the country so I am curious as to what the rest of you still get. If any of you live in Arizona I am especially interested since that is where I teach! **This last school year we had specials 4 days a week instead of 5. **We had either a 30 minute before or after school duty every day. **We did not have anyone specifically designated/hired to cover lunch duty and lunch recess. Our principal took "volunteers". This turned into every grade level spending half of their lunch- 20 minutes (total lunch break is 40 minutes) doing either cafeteria duty or lunch recess duty for their own grade level. There is talk of no specials what so ever this upcoming school year and I know every librarian district wide was layed off in the spring. This freaks me out because I am forseeing an 8 hour day with only a 15 minute lunch break. No specials or other breaks. I'm not sure I can go on that every day. Just curious, what do you get in your school? What has been taken away?
