Y'all would be so proud of me. After reading all the posts on organizing this summer I was inspired to really dig into my classroom. I've thrown away bags after bags of stuff I don't use, given some to new teachers and after too many trips to the Container Store I think the rest will look neater this year. 6 hours straight yesterday going through my closets and cabinets! At the end of the year last year I was joking about how disorganized I am (first step is admitting you have a problem, right?) and the group of teachers was surprised-except for on one who said-just look at the corners of her room where stuff is piled up. You think people don't really notice, but they do. Anyway this year I am going to be better!
