I visited my classroom for the first time since my interview today. I have some challenges with the set up, but I am addressing those with stride. At least I have tables and chairs! I heard from a former classmate who works in an urban district and she wasn't sure if she would have tables or chairs for her students on the first day of class. On a lighter note, I have TONS of storage. I have shelving shelving SHELVING! and beautiful large cabinets. I am sure this room will fit me and my students just fine!
Tomorrow is orientation. I look forward to this year. The nerves are fading a bit and I am starting to just be excited!
