I just completed my nineteenth first day of school yesterday.
Which I cannot believe.
But I did it. And then I took a bow and went to bed early.
I showed you all my classroom library the other day which I said was the only major overhaul that I did to my room this year. But today I’m here to show you something else I updated to make my life a little easier.
I got the bright idea last year that I needed more cubbies. You would think 32 cubbies would be enough, but it’s not even close to enough when you have 32 kiddos. The kids get the cubbies and I get nothing. And that just doesn’t seem fair considering I’m the teacher. And I have needs.
When I mentioned that I wanted more cubbies, my teammate, Heather, said her husband would probably be able to make some for us (or his men or his crew could because whatever it is he does has something to do with houses and wood and tools and what-not, and when I told Steve her husband would do it for us, he was thrilled because I usually make him do these types of things) and, sure enough, Heather brought us all more cubby shelves over the summer.
So thanks to Heather’s hubby (and my hubby for going to Lowe’s and getting more peg-like-shelf-thingamajigs and then putting all the new shelves in for me), I went from having 32 cubbies to having 48!
That’s 16 more cubbies for storage if you’re not up to doing the math (and I don’t actually know how I’m up to it seeing as how it’s the second day of school) but the bottom line is, 16 more cubbies is called AMAZING. I made the student cubbies smaller because we only use student cubbies for paperwork.
