Today I’m re-assembling our classroom. It’s hard work, but somebody’s got to do it! For some reason, this has become a tradition around here. I guess it’s just like other teachers that start a few weeks before school. They go into the school-house, and down to their classroom. They clean, decorate and organize. It’s really refreshing!
Who would have thought that? I’m always surprised by how I feel when I start to get our classroom ready for a new year. We’re really fortunate that we have a room that is just for school, but even so, I still have to clean it out and reorganize before I can lay down one lesson plan for the next year. Crazy huh? But, it makes me so refreshed and re-energized.
Ok, so I can get really frustrated with the process and even really tired. But it is so worth it in the end! The shelves are dusted, the bulletin board is decorated and the desks are neatly organized. At least for a little while……..
