    Getting ready
    By Blueyes

    I have gone in several times the last few weeks. The custodian has finished my room, so I can go more often. I'm in a new room and a new grade level, so it's taking more time to get ready. However, every year I'm in my room quite a bit, changing things, putting up new things, etc. Most of our teachers come in during the summer, because we have a lot of meetings scheduled on the inservice days. At the end of the year, we have to put away anything that is on the floor or the top of the window cabinets. Some of the teachers put up their next year bulletin boards and cover them. Our custodian moves out all the furniture and then puts it back, using a map that we tape to our board. When I first started teaching 40 years ago, we had to box up everything, take down everything, and cover everything. Then someone asked why we were doing that- everything is uncovered for nine months, why do we cover it for three? Now we often leave things on our walls and bulletin boards.
