What time do you get to school, and what time do the students arrive? In addition, what time do the students leave, and what time do you leave? Personally, I arrive at school around 6:30a.m. This gives me lots of quiet time with no one else needing the copier, and time to "get my head" ready for the kiddos, who arrive in my room at 7:50. My kiddos leave me between 2:45 and 3:00. I used to stay really late (till 6:30 some nights), but last year, I began leaving no later than 4:30, and I plan to continue that trend this year. I'm a bit OCD, so I like my classroom "just so" before I leave, lol.
