    I had 35 my first year (4th), 29 last year and 23 this year and I must say, class size makes a huge difference when it comes to childrens' education. There are so many more things you can do with a smaller class, and there are more opportunites to work with kids that need help.

    I could never figure out how our country spends so much money on new materials and resources but they dont use the money towards something that really matters, the student to teacher ratio. There sre some kids in my group of 35 that just got lost. With 23, i feel I can reach every kid.

    It is sad that some classes are still way over 30! What is the state and districts thinking????
    I know, it's all about money!
