    Year round and your own kids
    By Julianne

    My kids all went to year round schools. I haven't taught at one, but I know lots of teachers who do. We do it hear to alleviate overcrowding. I agree that you really need to look at your schedule and your family to see if it's a good fit. The teachers I know all seem to like it and have been able to arrange their own children's classes in other year round schools. The experiences my kids had were kind of different. All of them complained here and there about that hated child who made their lives miserable and would ALWAYS be in the same class because they were also on "B" track. My older son loved year round because he really needed short breaks now and then. My younger son hated year round because he wasn't good at transitions and with year round he was always either starting up or getting off. He's much happier now that he's in a traditional middle school. My daughter didn't seem to care one way or another.
