Planning my school teaching day would depend on how much freedom I had in setting my teaching schedule. As an ideal situation for me, I would teach three periods from about 0800 to 1100. The remainder of the time during the day would be spent in checking students' homework, making and grading tests, writing lesson plans, and developing new materials for instruction. Unfortunately, I teach about five hours each day with usually three hours in the morning and two hours in the afternoon. A lot of the work I would like to get done during school hours becomes homework for the weekend.
