    My son had 2 teachers this year, one on Mondays, one the rest of the week.

    I was so hesitant at first but it's been ok. I definitely prefer the teacher he has more often, she is an amazing teacher.

    Did he cope alright? My DS would have a meltdown every time there is a change of teacher. His kindy teacher has a release day(whatever that is?) each week and even after a year of it, he doesn't cope with the change i routine.

    I'm in a teaching partnership and we both think it's great

    Another of the benefits we have found is that if I am away for whatever reason or my teaching partner is, then the other is called in to work .... so for the kids, it's just business as usual

    I have been a team-teacher sharing a class with another teacher and my DD is just finishing a year at school with 2 teachers. As PPs have said, there are advantages and disadvantages to it. When it works well it works really well to the best advantage of the kids.

    As parents though I feel it is really important that we support it because it sets a standard for part time work in a profession typically dominated by full time staff. The more industries that can offer part time work the better!

    I understand not everyone will agree with me... And I'm basing my view on my gut feeling and not a scientific study... However this sounds horrible! I would have hated this as a kid. 60-70 kids together, even with 3 teachers... Eeeeek!

    It's still the same ratios about 22 students per teacher. But yeah its not for everyone but it's a a very different setting with a pretty different philosophy too. There are no walls in the school either. They're not all doing the same stuff together at the same time though it's kind of like a fluid space where kids move based on workshops. Oh and not every child has their own table and chair I should add add that there are 3 spaces which break off a community space so lots of little spaces and reading or exploring corners set up as quiet or research areas. They are huge spaces.

    Another job sharing teacher here! I work Thursday and Friday. It's a bit tricky to get used to at first but all the parents of kids I've taught have loved it. It helps having an awesome job share partner as I do! You get the best of two teachers and the kids love it. Good luck

    How do the teachers handle it? How do they know what the lesson plan is and how can they keep on top of knowing what each students strengths and weaknesses are?
    - genuine questions!
