I’m sitting in what will be my classroom– if, that is, I’m actually teaching next year, which, again, I don’t know if I’m doing or not. Yesterday I was positive about it. Today, I’m just tired, and I’d like somebody to make some damn decisions so I can move on with the work I need to do, whatever that work ends up being.
I’ve made one change in here, which is to rotate the desk so that if I’m at my computer I’m facing the kids and not facing the wall I have a fair amount of computer-lookery to do over the course of the day– checking email, entering attendance, that sort of thing– and I generally don’t ever want the kids behind me if I’m looking at something that’s going to claim my attention. Other than that? The desks are in some sort of weird half-circle thing; I might change that. Not much else, at least not today. Once I’m sure it’s my room, I’m gonna be moving some sit around. Until then, it’s not worth the mental effort.
