I’m confused. Maybe schools in my district run differently, but how can you have 3 preps, with six classes? What is your schedule like?

We have 7 periods and I teach 6. I got very lucky both last year and this year in that I only have one prep, however, up until 3 weeks ago I was suppose to have 3 different preps. I was NOT happy about that so I understand. While it is crazy, I think schools are doing whatever they can to make a schedule work….this is when having more certifications may not be a good thing Foot in Mouth


I hope you can work something out, and if not, I wish you the best with this school year. Utilize the teachers that prepped those courses in the past to help keep your sanity!

Where does lunch come into to play?  My experience is that say a school had 7 periods, One of those counts as lunch and another is a prep.  So a teacher will teach 5 periods out of seven.   If lunch does not count as a period, the six of seven would make sense.  Three different subjects will be difficult.  Hang in there

I teach 6/8 class periods and have 4 preps. I love teaching so many different classes, but it is a lot of work. It does make the day more interesting at least.
