    I currently job share in a first grade classroom. I teach 1/2 day, everyday. I am responsible for Math, Social Studies, and Science. My colleague is responsible for the Literacy Block. I love it!!! The children enjoy having two energetic, happy teachers. Our principal and the administration support this situation. I honestly do not know how the 60/40 split would be. I think this would be harder to manage, it would be difficult to communicate with the other teacher daily. My colleague and I talk daily about plans, student behavior, etc. I would have to agree with your principal, a split day would be much easier on the kids, parents, and you. I hope you do get to teach part-time. It is such a wonderful option for moms. Good luck and keep us posted.
