Just wanted to share some GREAT NEWS!!! So the school I work at has a NEW PRINCIPAL, and it has been very hard letting go of our old principal since he did such a great job, but this new principal is making a really good impression (with most of us). Anyways here comes the good news... I'M GETTING A BATHROOM INSTALLED IN MY CLASS!!!! This year I have 13 students in my SH 1-3rd grade class and my room is very small with no bathrooms and all but 2 kids in diapers or potty training. I have to walk across the school to get to the closest bathroom and it takes about an hour each time we go to transition to the restroom, recess, and back to class (we go 3 times a day). The new principal asked me a few days before school started how I felt with having such a high caseload and I told her my biggest concern was the bath-rooming issue. 3 days after school starts the superintendent of building admin comes into my classroom looks at my closet, leaves and then sends an e-mail to my principal saying it has been approved. IM STILL IN SHOCK, now people are measuring my closet (soon to be restroom) and drawing out plans. I NEVER thought it was possible, for 10yrs that classroom has always been a mod/sev special ed class and every teacher has ALWAYS mentioned something about bathrooms... and now I am ACTUALLY getting one!!!! Sorry I know its not the greatest thing... but it is going to make my life and the students life so much easier and provide so much more instructional time!!!! Just thought I'd share!!!!
