Photography and Viscom teacher Gina Sandland has been splitting teaching time with her son for almost three years now, but some students are still wondering why she abandoned full-time teaching.

“I wanted to test the waters of living on half my income,” Gina said. “[My son] Tyler came from Gildo Rey [Elementary ] and has his own business, but wanted to work with kids. We both thought job sharing would be fun.”

Luckily, the Sandlands’ students seem to enjoy the daily swap between teachers. As freshman photography student Aly Judge described, the students are able to get a taste of their different personalities and vibes, which is a fun experience in itself.

“I like it. I get to enjoy more free time for myself,” senior photography student Melvin Pumad said.

Sandland equally enjoys the shared teaching times, but for different reasons.

“I get to see Tyler’s perspective on class. Half-off times let me pursue hobbies and spend time with my three-year old grandson. On Tyler’s day off, he works in his business, which is great,” she said.
Students have often explained that the shared teaching times make for an interesting and ever-changing environment.

Overall, the teachers and students both seem pleased with the teachers splitting class time. The students get different vibes from different teachers, and each teacher gets a little time off each week to pursue their own careers and hobbies.
