Today, the teachers finally had access to the new school building to set up their classrooms. Honestly, I was excited and overwhelmed. At this point, we can’t put up anything on the walls yet, but arranging the furniture, emptying boxes, and putting stuff away can cause momentary paralysis. Where to start?
Setting up a classroom is one of the things teachers begin to do about this time of year. It’s only day one, but I had to set mini goals just to put a dent into it. “Empty at least ten boxes,” my cohort and I told ourselves. We did much more than that and still, when I was done (see photo below), it looked like the room had hardly been touched. Oh well, round 2 tomorrow.
