Holy Crap!

DH's class roster arrived. Here are the numbers:

Period 1 32 7th grade
Period 2 30 8th grade (Advisory)
Period 3 (prep & conference)
Period 4 38 8th grade
Period 5 31 8th grade
Period 6 28 8th grade
Period 7 27 8th grade

38!!!! The room only seats 32. There are 4 extra seats at what should be a workstation table, for a total of 36 in a PINCH.

And people wonder why teachers leave the profession so quickly....

Good grief. 38 8th graders... I'd say shoot me now. NOW! 8th graders were killer when I was student teaching. Uniquely challenging. Not like 7th or 9th graders. Something happens to them when they're 8th graders...
