You just described my classroom until this past week, when
I lost one and went down to 25.
Unfortunately, the state of California is no help. We can
have up to 27.
A very long time ago, before the days of extreme-academia
hit kindergarten, I taught kinder with 33 in it. However,
we were only half-day then, we shared a room with another
teacher who taught the other half-day. If you taught
morning kindergarten, you gave 100 minutes of time to the
afternoon teacher; afternoon teacher gave 100 minutes to
the morning teacher. So we weren't completely "aide-less"
at that time.
