le collège Calypso

There are about 600 pupils in our school from 6ème (6th grade) to 3ème ( 10th grade), and 40 teachers. There are about 24 pupils in each grade. Each grade has the name of a color!
school starts at 8:30 am and ends at 4:55 pm. There are 4 classes in the morning and 3 in the afternoon.
There are 2 recesses: one in the morning, and one in the afternoon.
And there is a break for lunch from 12:30 to 1:50.

All the students have the same subjects : maths, French, history, geography,technology, art, music, science,PE, a foreign language = English or German in 6th grade ( and a second foreign language in 8th grade : English , German or Spanish). They can take latin and greek in 8th grade as well.

And now, some information about me! I am 34 years old, I have started teaching English in 2000.
I teach English to 5 "classes" this year : the 6 yellow, 6 purple, 5 blue, 5 red and 4 green. The students in 6ème (6th grade 10-11 years old) have 4 hours of English per week. For the others (5ème= grade7 11-12 years old / 4ème= grade 8 12-13 years old), there are 3 hours of English per week. So... I have 18 hours per week at school... teaching. But I work at home too! teachers have got tons of homework ;)
Here is what my classroom looks like:
