Well, here it is.... the new room.
It was also enough time for me to realize there is something wonky going on with the furniture in the room... This used to be a first grade room and that teacher went to another school. So any first grade stuff should have been put into storage or divided among her team. BUT there are 2 rocking chairs... neither of which are mine and I think they are a big waste of space. There are 2 filing cabinets... one is mine. First grade uses tables instead of desks so you would think they would trade out the tables for desks right? NOPE. I now have 26 desks AND 6 square tables!
Two new elementary schools are opening in the area so we are down-sizing big time, which means storage space is extremely limited. My principal says that whatever is in the room must stay there. I thought this meant I would get some extra bookcases (you can never have enough bookcases). But what the heck am I going to do with all the tables?! To give you a mental picture, my old room had just enough space for the desks, reading table and ONE square table. The room I'm in now is much smaller, with a closet half the size of my old one and I have SIX tables to get rid of! BOOOOOOOOOOOO.
Ok. I'm done. I will re-attack the monumental task tomorrow. On a happier note....
