There were 178 school days. I worked 127 of them. This is way up from each of the previous listed years.
I did not work the first nor the last day of school. (Some years I do.) Of those days, 15 were in classes that did not have a prep period. (I'm pretty sure half of those were for the same math teacher who I covered several times this year.) And 27 of those days I covered another class on the prep period.
I spent one day in an elementary class (the less said about that the better). 52 days were in high school classes, 30 days were in middle school classes, and 44 days were at the continuation high school. This is another surprising number--I was sure I spent way more time at the continuation high school than anywhere else.
- Science: 33 days
- 5 days of physics (up from last year)
- 11 days with the 8th graders
- 6 days in health (5 of those for the same teacher)
- Math: 31 days
- 11 days of Algebra 2 (Woot!)
- 4 days of Calculus (including those zero period days)
- 10 days of Algebra 1
- English: 13 days
- 5 of those continuation high school English
- Social Studies: 29 days
- 13 days of US history (several of those for the same teacher. She's never absent. This year was an aberration.)
- 9 days of geography (most of those at the continuation high school)
- Reentry: 9 days (this is because they added another reentry teacher, and she was having medical issues this year)
I did not cover a full day of special ed, but I did cover one period on my prep period on 7 different days. I covered 5 days of art, one day of band (Woot! Only one day!), two days in computer classes, and one day of Spanish. I had no opportunity days (a great big WOOT!), but I did get to cover a new leadership class seven different times.
What's great about these posts is I can go back and compare to previous years. And this year was wildly different. In a good way.
