    My classroom is great, but I would love air conditioning and access to a laptop cart (which should be coming this year! YIPPEE!)

    My Student Activities office is another matter; it's too small (only room for about 4 kids to meet with me) and I already have storage cabinets on every available wall and have run out of space. Keeping my fingers crossed that the Board of Directors will okay a student rec center soon so I'll have more space to work.

    1. More space so I can play with desk arrangements and make cool areas.
    2. More Science and Math stuff (manipulatives, experiment stuff, models, books including space to store and sink and heat source)
    3. WINDOWS (My new room has none. Seriously, this is an issue for me. I have always had windows. I need to see the sunshine. Really, I have thought of putting up a big picture as a faux window. I'm not dealing well with this change.)
    4. AC and Heat that don't require a 4 hour time of adjustment to get it to work. Literally.
    5. Every techie toy you can picture in your mind with beautiful storage in which to house it.

    Oh, did I mention windows?:lol:

    I have a great room, but, the carpet is seriously at least 30 years old. It is grosser than gross. If I could take that out, I would be totally happy.

    I have windows, storage, bathrooms, closets, it is a great place. I am getting a smart board too :)

    I would like it a little cleaner, but other than that, I feel lucky :)
