Clip to ScrapBook #9

I've heard that some districts give their English teachers time off to have grading days. Even our high school teachers have it better than middle school in my district because they might only have 60 students while we have upwards of 120. When I was able to structure my own classes, I could build in independent reading after an essay to give myself time to grade. What was also nice about that is that if there was a major problem with an essay or paper, I could pull the student back to fix it...Now, I'm directly teaching every single day. Ugh!

I do agree that it is smart to try to limit work home.
