Teachers came back to campus today for our pre-service training. We had not been allowed on campus before today and this is kind of a daunting sight to come back to:
(please ignore the shoes-my poor feet are not used to wearing shoes all day! :)
We will luckily have time each day to work in our rooms, but still it feels like I don't even know where to start. I can't move this until I get this put away. And wait, where am I going to put this. I hate changing classrooms because then you have to wait until the teacher who was there before you takes everything they want to take along with them. So easy things like my files-I can't even put in the file cabinet yet. *boo*
Oh well, it will come together, it always does. I am excited that our new principal is incorporating book studies this year-I truly believe it helps us continue learning. I can read a book, but until I discuss with someone else and maybe gain that new perspective, I don't think it's as effective.
P.S. If there's a teacher at your school whose room looks like mine does--please don't keep popping and and reminding me that I have a lot of work to do or that you have a lot of stuff. *sigh*
I am working on my welcome letter to send out to families. Usually I give them a task to do and bring the first day, but I couldn't think of anything exciting. Isn't this cool paper I found-we are the Bears (thus the pawprints) and our school color is green-perfect right!?
Hope everyone who is trickling back to their classrooms are overcoming their daunting tasks as well! :)
