My daughter's in a split 1st - 2nd grade class. The teacher taught like 4th or 5th grade before she's never taught 1st grade before. This is my concern,,, that school is from 9:15 to 3:25, you get about an hour for lunch & recess time, and then about 25+ minutes for music, p.e. or library. By the time you take that into consideration, the school day goes from 6 hours 10 minutes to just over 4.5 hours. Don'f for get that she has a split class so she has to teach the 2nd graders their stuff and then the 1st graders theirs or vice versa. I've already expressed my concerns with them but it doesn't seem like their looking for a new 1 grader teacher or even an assistant for the one that they already have. At least with an assistant they can combine all of the 1st graders into on classroom and they all receive the same quality of education.
Or am I thinking too much about it and just keep picking up the slack from what the teachers not doing like I am doing already?
