This week is Teacher Week 2011!!!
Join in the fun by clicking below and hopping over!
Today is Where it All Goes Down Wednesday. I had really hoped to have pictures to show and have been working on my room all week – actually I have worked for 6 days. (Teachers go back next week and the kids begin the following week.) Sadly, I’m just not feeling like my room is ready. I had hoped to be done by now! I actually spent one full day just moving large furniture around because it was all in a pile inside the door. I changed some things around and have been agonizing about the flow and where things are going to go. In a word, I am stressed.
I needed filing cabinets, but have very little full wall space, so adding 2 tall cabinets has been a process. I also have a paraprofessional joining my class this year, and a student teacher in October. I literally have no space for other people. To top it all off, I had these great visions for my bulletin boards, and after 3+ hours of work, they did not turn out as I had planned. I don’t have space for book boxes and I have still not solved to problem of not having a cubby space for each kiddos things.
I am frustrated at having spent this much time and feeling like I am just hitting my head against the wall. I had sincerely hoped that I would have it down this year and be done in a couple days. Instead, I again feel like I am starting from scratch.
Sorry for the bummer of a post. I hope that I can get something worthwhile done tomorrow.
