I have great opportunity to move to new school, new grade level, new town. I'm getting very excited about the upcoming year, despite a tedious paperwork process, key card issue, and miscommunications. I finally got a chance to see my work space & plan how I'd like to use the space for students. I've met my leader & a few colleagues, while hearing positives about the area, the school, & parent community. Here's the problem....After cleaning, moving furniture, and setting up the majority of my space, I've learned my storage area was promised to another teacher....in another grade, with a different schedule. The leader says it'd be ideal to share (other teacher would want to put her fridge, microwave, personal things, games, etc) What do I do? I'm the new kid in the block....I don't want to start year with colleague problems, but I need the space myself. Plus, how would sharing the space work?!! Would she be permitted to come as she pleases? I'd appreciate any advice!!
