First Day of School

Teaching the students that is... I'd already been working in my room the past month- my newly formed school in a brand new building-- was sent supplies from a couple of schools that closed in June.

This is the way that my classroom looked:

I opened up over 150 boxes... all full of a variety of supplies... including some items that did not belong in my classroom and it took several all day long days of unpacking items-- which wasn't easy w/ torn tendons in my hand.

SHHHh, don't tell my hand surgeon that I was unpacking boxes full of school supplies- and picking up items from the boxes and then finally to the shelves and cabinets once everything was unpacked.

I told him that I'd very careful with my hand and I will be more in the future... of course, my hand let me know when I over-did it too..

AND.. my movers will bring my household goods to my new house soon... and they'll need to be unpacked too. Oh well... it has to be done.

Eventually, it looked like a classroom. *I'll try to remember to take a photo and post it here.

Today was very busy and went pretty well. However, I'm sure that by Friday-- we'll all be tired... teachers and the students. lol

Now I just feel dumb, 'cause I clicked on each photo, and I am missing the clue. ;-)

Obviously, I'm overlooking it.
