My classroom






School starts on Monday - it is our first day back with kids. In between meetings about student council, meetings about block schedule, meetings about the freshman academy, meetings about social studies, meetings about learning village (notice a theme?) I also spent some time working on my classroom. Luckily the time spent was nothing like last year. Last year, I inherited a dirty, bare room and had no teacher supplies to speak of. Luckily, last year I wasn't paying rent, utilities, cable, and was eating at home so I could spare some bucks. That certainly wasn't the case this year.

I finally got around to taking some pictures. It will look a bit different soon due to students and their stuff being everywhere but it gives you a good idea of what I'm working with. I'm proud of my classroom because 1) it is one of the biggest in the school, 2) it has a lot of windows, 3) it is colorful and bright, 4) I like my set up, 5) I have a smart board (yay!). I don't like my classroom because 1) it is on the third floor and 2) it gets VERY hot. Our air is out right now (notice the glimmer of sweat on me in the pics) and mine is not blowing at all. Across the hall? oh a nice 74 degrees (chilly in school world) but mine is hoovering about 87. That is much better than the 104 we hit last year when the heat in my room went crazy.

I hope you enjoy the pictures of where I spend most of my life.

Wow! I am so impressed and hope the air gets fixed by tomorrow. How we all ever taught in unair-conditioned schools for so many years, I will never know. We even got went only half days during the worst of the August heat. No one can learn when they are too hot.
