How early to you get to school each day? Our day officially begins at 8:00 but we have to be there by 7:30 each day. I usually arrive around 6:45. Some teachers at my school get there at 5:50 or 6 each day. I can't figure out what they must do for 1 hour and a half in their classroom. Some of these teachers also stay to 6 each night.This is my first year so I was just wondering what the norm was.
