    So I get to go see my class on Thursday when I sign my contract. The school I am at is an hour from my house so I'm trying to get a plan of things to look at while I'm there before I head out. I am going to bring a camera and measuring tape to document my room and wall space. What else should I check out while I am there? This is my first year teaching so I'm excited to see me new space. :D

    I'm not sure about the classroom stuff.

    But scout out a gas station near school. Also a deli/coffee shop/ whatever for those days when you leave work hungry and want something to munch on as you drive.

    Get to know the layout of the school. The first year in the school that I teach at, I was confused where special classrooms were all located. My school is pretty good sized. I didn't even get a chance to learn names of the lower elementary teachers because I never saw them!

    Take a drive around the surrounding community. You'd be surprised about what you can learn about your students from their community.

    I was uber excited to see my room last year! Good luck!

    Thanks everyone! I have a unique experience in that I am going to be teaching on one of the reservations out here. There is a lot of community involvement so I'm excited to work there. :)
