I stopped by today — the first time I’ve ever been to my classroom in the middle of summer, and all my furniture was piled up in the hall by my cubbies. I went inside and it was completely empty, except for all the dust bunnies.
Well, and the tech guy who is currently installing my videodata projector from the ceiling. Whoo hoo! He was surprised to see me, but I think he liked hearing my enthusiasm and thanks. He said this is all he’s doing this whole summer — visiting 24 schools and putting the vdp’s in every classroom.
I asked him if he had an extra smartboard he could give me, but alas, no.
I dropped off all the stuff I bought and then went home with tons of curriculum materials so I can start lesson planning. The beginning of the year is always so stressful for me, I figure, if I at least plan out the first few weeks, things will go easier.
