I may have the opportunity to teach a "zero" period for next year (7:20-8:10) and in return to have an "extra" period off during the day, meaning I would be done at noon 2-3 days per week. (I would have to stick around for meetings on Wednesdays, though). I'm torn because I love the idea of being done early, especially during the winter when it's getting dark already at 3:30. Plus, it would be like having a prep period every day, and no long days with three blocks in a row. On the other hand, I am not exactly a morning person, and already have a tough time getting up at 6am (again, especially during the winter darkness). Plus, I currently like having 30-45 minutes in my room before students arrive, and I don't think I would be up for getting there at 6:45 What do you think? Do any of you currently teach 0 period? Would you go for it or not, and why?
