Clip to ScrapBook #15

Our credential says we can have 31 after 10 days (no matter what grade), but we WOULD run out of tables. We try to keep it at 24, which is still a lot of students. My first year was with 2nd grade and I only had 13, BUT only one stayed with me the whole year. Each quarter I had a new roster with only one student that I knew. I didn't know who to teach to or who knew the standards. The joke became my room had a revolving door. And after that year our principal spread out the "newbies" so no teacher would have that problem again. I agree that a few more students is a nice size, but at least this year you can get your head around the curriculum. It's also nice to have a 'team' to bounce ideas off of or lead the way if they are veteran teachers.
