How much time do you get each week for lesson planning and preparation?

We have quite a bit of time in our district for planning. I have a plan period every weekday (around 50 minutes). In addition to our plan periods, we have hour long team meetings Wednesdays after school and monthly half days where the second half of the day is used for collaboration with other teachers.

I wish we could use our half days for planning! Our principal usually has an agenda set. I wish we could use that time to collaborate and plan.

In my district we get 50 minutes 4 days per week, and 40 minutes on Wednesdays (early release days). I feel lucky because I know that a lot of teachers don't get that much time...but there is still not enough time!

like

Our district provides 45 minutes each day, however much of this time is taken up with mandatory meetings. I stay late once a week until I get everything done for the following week. I'm usually there until 10, so I choose Fridays for that.

like

Our 4-8th grade prep is 45 minutes (30 on Wednesday). CLT on short Wednesday is sometimes meetings, sometimes collaboration. I guess the 25 minutes between the final bell and end of contract time counts, too? I like to take advantage of my husband’s day off to work late 1 evening and then I usually bring home the rest and try to pull a late night Friday (whether or not this works depends on the week- some are too exhausting!)

Starting all over again! All of my life I have been fighting my weight. I lose 20, gain 30. Lose 30, gain 40. So, I am starting again. I have my meal plan in place, started walking again, and scheduled a nutritionist for next week. Hoping against hope that this is the final time I have to learn this lesson.

Would a guy lie about having sex with you? I drank too much last week and I can't recall going all the way with the guy. He said we didnt have sex a month ago (first time put together) but I clearly remember feeling different the next day and then he said we did a week ago when we went out again but I don't recall it at all. I obviously learned my lesson about not drinking too much to avoid these situations and questions -.-

Guess the lesson here is to carry Trump flags and the police won't pepper spray you.

Hello everyone! I need some advice on how to approach this situation. I am on a team that does not work well together at all. It is stressful and I usually have to make decisions concerning our grade level alone. One teacher never does assigned duties, completes lesson plans, or attends meetings. The other teacher yells and complains all day. They both leave early everyday. How should I express my concerns with admin? I no longer want to work with these individuals.

YES! I'm sad that I don't care about coming to school or working as hard as I usually do to develop good lesson plans. The admin, the kids the political arena, the COVID crap and apathy among all has hit my enthusiasm. I want to take some sick days but felt like I needed to keep teaching my AP kids AND writing SUB plans is a pain. Our principal and supt. are stepping down and we are getting several new teachers. I'm hoping our school will get back on track next year...

Advice on holding/selling: I started investing last year, mostly in index funds but also in ETFs of sectors I believe most in (renewables, hydrogen, biotech).

Is it worth holding on despite 20-30 percent losses, or are even worse times ahead/will get eaten up by fees? Lesson learned to not overindex on growth…
