We're getting SMART boards this week (the IT department is working in our classrooms since we're on Spring Break). Our LCD projectors are being replaced, too! Our old projectors were starting to give us issues, so the timing is great! Anyway, the maintenance department is going to be installing conduit to cover up all the wires that the new technology is going to create. Due to the installation of the SMART board, projector, and conduit, we had to take down all bulletin boards that are located in the front of our classroom. I had just put up new butcher paper and border to display student work a few weeks ago. Now, I (along with all other teachers at my site) had to take everything down! I'm going to come back to bare walls! Teachers are complaining because our principal could've waited to do this in the summer; however, she chose to do it now because she "wanted to get it over with." Enough ranting...for now! I have to keep reminding myself that I'm coming back to a SMART board!!!
