    Planning Time
    By NJ Teacher

    Clip to ScrapBook
    We get 30 minutes three days a week, and 45 minutes twice a week. Art and LIbrary are the longer preps. at my grade, but the lower grades get only 30 min. for that. What I don't like is that the 4th and 5th grade building gets longer preps. While their correcting of work takes longer (I taught at that level for years,), the lower grades need much more set-up time for many of their learning activities. We also have an Enrichment teacher who comes in and is certifed. We can use the 40 minutes she is in to do planning, but we are not supposed to leave the room, so technically, it's not a prep. I don't think prep. time language is in our contract (hence, the variablity across the grade levels), and we do have a union.
