From My Mailbox: Miami First-Grade Teacher Hates Homework

Dear Sara,

I teach first grade and give homework only for math and reading and occasionally science and social studies. I give it because the district says we have to. The kids have been there for 6 hours. Why do they need more work when they get home? When I get home I want to relax, make dinner, enjoy my family and exercise but instead I have to help, organize and reteach things….that is ridiculous….i am very stressed and I think it is unfair…..

How can we change things here in Miami?

Signed,

A frustrated teacher

  1. I think it is unfair sometimes for teachers to give you 3-6 tests in one day also with them give you homework in 6th grade why can’t you just do it with the students in class so they have more time to play and have fun and stress them out.
