The thread about when teachers are allowed in their schools to work on their rooms got me to thinking. First of all, I'm amazed at how many teachers aren't allowed in their school during the summer! How are your rooms packed up at the end of school? I think part of my amazement at teachers only getting 1 or 2 days is that our rooms are basically emptied each year, so we are more or less starting over every year. We have to move everything to the hall before summer and we come back to everything piled in the middle of the room. We have lockers in our rooms and we all have bookshelves on top of the lockers with supplies and resources in them. When your room gets painted, you have to move all of that, too. So, how was your room packed up? Were you able to basically get it ready before summer, or did you have to haul it all out, too?
