Today I finally got into my classroom. Check out the scene this morning at 7:00. Aren’t the new windows nice? None of the stuff in here is mine, though. It all belongs to the Spanish program and the After School program.
At 7:30 the movers showed up. Movers! Can you believe it? All I had to do was tell them where to put stuff! By 9:30, all of their stuff was out and mine was in. Except for my door. I mean, I can’t exactly switch doors, can I?
Then Lisa and I got busy. We put up fabric on the blackboards and started cleaning furniture. I wanted shorter bookcases (who wants to block those great windows?) so I dismantled the double-decker one and the pieces fit under the chalk rail. A new, huge, ugly cabinet needed some paint, so it got one coat of yellow before I left for the day.
Doesn’t this just scream, “I’m a teacher!!!” ? Do you think it’s all too much color?
School starts in TWO WEEKS!!!!! Will I be ready?
OH, and by the way, for dinner I chopped up some of that lovely fungus and roasted it with potatoes, tempeh, garlic, green beans and zucchini. (No photo.) I suppose it tasted like chicken….
