Shelves piled with stuffed animals, frog statues, flower vases piled above my cupboards are a sign that this teacher needed to purge/clean. So, I did. I've kept a few sentimental and personalized items from students and their families, but for the 22 stuffed animals, 5 decorated glass vases, 1 set of broken plastic mariachi shakers, 1 frog jewelry box, 3 "You're the Best Teacher Ever" signs, Still wrapped chocolate roses (I know, I just couldn't eat them. But save them for 3 years? Why not?), and the list goes on..... I'm letting them go! Anyone else cleaning (purging)?
