Today is our second day back at school. I knew I missed it but I hadn't realized how much! This is like a second home for me. It just feels so nice to walk into my classroom and begin thinking where I'm going to put my posters this year and how I can make the classroom library accessible without being in the way. My room is like a sanctuary. I love my rolly chairs and my windows. I love my computer area along the walls. I love my closet and my supply drawer. I love my little printer tables that I use for teacher desks. I love that I can have the big teacher desk set up as another computer workstation. I love the big color laserprinter. I love that I have the digital clock in the front of the room covered with a mini-poster, and I have my analog clock hanging in the back of the room. I don't love long, boring meetings, particularly when I feel my time could be used more productively.
How much longer, Papa Smurf?
Yesterday I was mad because I thought I left the power cords at home. Turns out they were in the classroom and just boxed up! Derh. But then today I forgot the ad sale book again. Either that or it's somewhere that I don't know where it is. I need to check the filing cabinets.
I'm SO sleepy just sitting here. I'm taking notes on the meeting to try to help me stay alert and focused but it's SO HARD. Somehow the aches aren't helping; you'd think they'd make it easier.
