Split classes take away joy! We have 6-7 classes at each grade level and they split 1-2 into the remaining 5 so we can have a 5 day schedule. Big classes plus the classroom culture homeroom teachers work so hard to achieve are ruined. Advice? (Plus we are told to "not be negative" by admin.)

Yep, I hate the extra large groups too! Sorry I don't really have advice I just cope.

I found it was more effective to simplify my projects and goals with an overly-packed schedule, to not overly stress. If administration complained to ME, I said "I'm doing the best I can under the circumstances", and that shut them up.

Ugh I remember they did that one year with kinders. They split one class between 3. Imagine their excitement each day to see the other class (rowdy) and coming from 2 different management styles.

So my ISD split me between a HS and a MS that recently reopened. I'm the only MS band director. The MS decided, without consulting me, to use the band hall as a classroom and after school enrichment "daycare". AKA added desks and tables. How do I approach this? I feel it is not OK in the slightest. I feel the band hall should reflect the goals, discipline, and culture of the program. Not as an empty classroom.

Many teachers in my county are resigning or retiring. We are being forced to go sit in empty classrooms when we’ve been working from home this entire year. Some have health concerns, others have children they aren’t comfortable bringing up to the building. Some have children that are also in online school, so easier to be home with them while working. I know not everyone agrees with some of us choosing to leave, but our county is one of the worst for Covid. We also just had to cancel 10,000 vaccinations because the truck didn’t show up.
