This year we'll have 6 teachers and 144 2nd graders (at most recent count.) Last year we had 7 teachers and 132 kids, so this is a bit of a change. I went in to set up my room yesterday. No matter what I do, I cannot fit 24 desks and still keep my teacher desk, so I asked my custodians to take it away. I'm actually pretty happy about it. In the 5 years I've taught, my teacher desk has done nothing but hold things I'm trying to hide and been a place to stash papers Hopefully this will force me to be more organized.
