Join me for a week in my life as a 5th grade teacher!
This year, school definitely looks a lot different due to protocols. However, in my district, elementary school is still 5 days a week. Families have the choice to be 100% virtual or 100% in person. Middle and High schools are either 100% virtual or hybrid (where they attend school 2 days a week and do virtual work 2 days a week).
This year, instead of being departmentalized (where I would teach Language Arts and Social Studies and a partner teacher would teach Math and Science), we are all self-contained. Self-contained means I’m teaching all subjects to one class all day long. Lunches are in the classrooms and are “silent” as long as their masks are off. We have two recesses, but they’re 30 minutes each.
Enjoy a week in my life as a 5th grade teacher!
