Link Up for a Day In My Shoes!

It's been so fun to read about everyone's daily schedules! So I thought I would link up with Adventures of a 6th Grade Teacher to tell you what my typical day looks like 

5:30 Get up and get ready for school

6:20 Leave the house for school

6:40 Arrive at school and prepare for before school tutoring

6:55 Go get before school students from the gym and begin tutoring

7:45 Dismiss before school students and welcome homeroom students to class for roll and announcements

7:55 Dismiss homeroom for 1st period of 6th grade reading/spelling

9:25 Dismiss 1st period 

9:30 Welcome 2nd period of 6th grade reading/spelling

10:30 Take 2nd period to P.E or Life Skills

11:00 Welcome 2nd period back

11:25 Dismiss 2nd period

11:30 Welcome 3rd period of 5th grade reading/spelling

12:00 Take 3rd period to lunch

12:30 Welcome 3rd period back from lunch

1:25 Dismiss 3rd period

1:30 Welcome 4th period of 5th grade reading/spelling

2:55 Dismiss 4th period to snack and lockers

2:55-3:15 Work with late bus riders on homework 

3:15-4:30 Work as volunteer after school tutor

4:30-5:30 Get classroom ready for next day

5:30 Head to the house (well this is the time I aim for, but it does not always happen) (Especially when I have parent involvement meetings, ball game duty, or other activities to do or prepare for)

*I also have thirty minutes of computer lab time for each class period, each week. 1st period goes on Monday, 2nd period goes on Tuesday and so on. 2nd period has library on Mondays too, so we lose thirty minutes of class time. 



  1. Hi Meagan:
    I would be so confused if different kids kept showing up. I think I would forget what I was supposed to teach to whom! That's one of the reasons I have always resisted the move to middle school.
    I tutor (voluntarily) too--I'm really hoping it will help some of my strugglers.
    Hope you are enjoying your weekend!

    Finding JOY in 6th Grade

    1. Kim,
      I feel deja vu daily! I use an agenda for each class so that I make sure to teach and do everything I planned. I have volunteered my time to tutor the last two years and I have really noticed a difference in students. Thank you for stopping by!

  2. Im loving reading about everyone's day! You get up so early!

    1. I am so jealous as I read some blogs with nine 0'clock start times. I wish we would have a later start to the day. We have some students that attend both before school and after school tutoring. So they are at school for up to nine and half hours.

  3. I'm your newest follower - found you over at the linky party. Welcome to blogging! :)

  4. Yeah for another middle school teacher! I so wish that I just taught reading and spelling. I am not a big fan of the writing part!

    Thanks for linking up!
