    Default My daughter has two teachers!

    So my daughter is in grade 1 next year and we received her teachers names, what is odd is she has two teachers, teacher A - Monday,Tuesday, Wednesday & teacher B- Thursday,Friday! Just wondering how common this is? I'm not sure I like it!

    It happens a lot and there's lots of good stuff about it. Your child has 2 people she can bond with or if she doesn't like one then she always has another teacher. So long as the teachers work together they can effectively plan, teach and assess without much trouble. Teachers have options to go part time and this is not unusual. At our school each child has 3 learning advisors in an open plan space of about 60-70 kids, team teaching give lots more options for personalisation.

    I think it's becoming more common. They're probably mums of small kids. I think it's a good thing, I think we should all be encouraging of flexible workplace arrangements.

    I had 2 year 6 teachers back in 1996. One did M-W and the other (also the libarian) did the T &F. So I'd say it's been happening for quite some time.

    Yep, 'tandem teaching' is fairly common. I think it's ok, better than being stuck with one crapola one all year. Odds are better this way

    It's great. The best of both worlds. 2 teachers who will be enthusiastic and not tired by Wednesday. Teachers should be able to work part time too. As long as they work well together it should be great.

    Both my girls had 2 teachers each. I was initially concerned but when they explained how they were dividing the subjects it seemed okay. One DD actually had a mother and daughter tag team, so I figured communication wasn't going to be a problem.
