Today I went to my classroom for the first time this year!!  I walked in, and this was what I saw...
Oh boy. I have a lot of work to do. It's kind of hard to tell, but all my stuff is piled on top of the counter in between the windows. We have to stack all our stuff at the end of the year on the counter so the cleaners can shampoo the carpets and wax the floors.
Here's the view from the corner, where my wardrobe cabinet is. Sorry the pictures aren't all that great. I took them with my phone. Today my goal was just to put all that stuff away that's on the counter. I also wanted to organize and put away the random stuff I crammed on the shelves underneath the counter.

This view isn't so bad. I'm standing in the corner where my sink is.

And the last corner of the room. All those windows look out into a common area we call the Break Out. There are six classrooms around the breakout: three 1st grade and three 2nd grade. We have about 25 computers and tables for small groups to work out there. 

Today I did pretty well. I spent the first hour or two just staring at it, trying to figure out a new way to arrange the furniture. My new teammate was at school today too, and it was really helpful to brainstorm ideas with her. And when we didn't know what to do, we just went over to her room to problem solve over there! :) My goal was to put everything where it belongs. I'm about 90% done with that... just a few odds n ends that need to be put away. Tomorrow's goal is to hang up my posters and organize my books, desk area, and wardrobe closet. I'll post more pics tomorrow!
