At the beginning of the year work with your team to develop a plan that
will help you get through the practical stuff. Pre-divide each class so
the same children always get sent to the same teacher, call the rest of
the grade the night before or in the early AM to give them a "heads up"
that you won't be in, figure out a system for getting extra sheets run off
so the receiving teacher has enough papers, keep a "traveling tub" with
the students' emergency cards, extra school supplies or whatever will
be needed when the students are in another class, figure out how you
are going to handle specials, lunch and recess with the extra kids, etc.
Since you already know now that this will be your reality for next year,
prepare the best you can to make it go smoothly for the teachers and
