This was the first view of my classroom. I couldn’t wait until Monday to explore; I got to work Sunday night.
There was a lot to sort through—shelves, file cabinets, bins, cupboards. I purged like a maniac. I found stuff like this. This wasn’t the only thing that was over 20 years old.
The first two official days of work were spent mostly in meetings. By Thursday, my room was a disaster area. Piles everywhere.
But by Friday night, I was ready to go!
Except for the lesson planning! I had to spend the weekend working on that!
