How does a day in the life of a student compare to a teacher’s?

Sierra Namvari, Reporter

Amy Byrne (teacher)

Morning:  

“I wake up at 5:00am and get to school by 6:00am.”

During school:  

“While students are working doing asynchronous work or collaborative activities, I usually check my lesson plans and prepare the next activity that we will do or do the activity simultaneously so that I will better be able to judge how long it takes students to complete. 

I usually check my emails during my prep period and grade homework before school, in the evening or on the weekends.”

After School:

“Right after school I go to the grocery store, eat a quick snack, check on my kids (help with homework, make them food), and then exercise.”

Free Time:

“In my free time, I spend time with my kids and husband (play basketball, ride bikes, walk/jog or do a workout together, play cards or a board game), talk to family on the phone, cook, exercise, read or watch a show. 

We often do family movie and pizza night on Friday or Saturday. That’s why I love getting movie recommendations from students!!”

Night: 

“I usually go to sleep at 10pm during the week.”

Morning:  

“I usually wake up around 7:30, sometimes 6:00am depending on whether or not I have incomplete homework.”

During school:  

“I wouldn’t say I normally have projects or tests, other than math class, but I do have big assignments that are worth a lot of points. 

I also participate in many clubs during school. I have some meetings during lunch but most of them are after school.”

After School:

 “I usually go to the gym with my brother then play soccer with my team.” 

Free Time:

“When I come home at night I finish up my homework and study. 

For days that I don’t have soccer, I try to go on bike rides to freshen myself.”

Night: 

“Lately I’ve been going to sleep around 10, no later than 11.”
