    For the life of me I cannot post images. I know how to do it, I'm trying to do it but the picture doesn't show up, only the actual text. So frustrating.

    Anyways, I finally set up my classroom :) I uploaded pictures into my album.
    It was hard work, 3 days of cleaning, geting rid of stuff, and then putting up my own. (that was the fun part) :)

    First day of school is tomorrow - well, for me it's the first day.

    Hope you can get them posted!

    Even if you just get the link text to show, we can copy and paste that and see them. :)

    I actually got rid of 2 book shelves, and a huge filing cabinet. Of course we didn't throw them away, it's in storage at the school. All those bookshelves you see (the really tall ones) I don't even need, they're full of books I probably won't be using at all. This is after we got rid of 20 or more boxes of books, removed one book shelf from that area.

    The shorter ones are full of library books, a LOT of them!

    I wish I had more wall space, sometime soon I might get rid of one more bookshelf. There are things I want to put on the walls.

    I just uploaded the pictures in my album here, it was easier.
    My first day was pretty good, 2nd better, today even better. But I'm too hard on myself. My P said to give myself a break, it's only day 3 :)

    By the way today a maintenance person opened the huge filing cabinet (it's like a huge metal wardrobe) that we didn't have the keys to. It has all kinds of goodies I can use (although I could tell a lot was elementary stuff) and a laptop :) I assume it was the teacher's laptop.

    Oh ok. I found the pictures. Nice job. It looks like you have a lot of space in your classroom.

    Thank you! A few things are bothersome or uncomfortable though. I have to have my laptop + projector on cart in the middle, right between students (alhtough I space those rows apart enough that I can actually walk through). All my powerpoints I have to save to the laptop (update, actually) because I'm sure one student would at some point steal my flashdrive, just to mess with me. A couple of times someone changed the focus or put the cap back on so we couldn't see the slied, but it wasn't too many times :)

    Next year I think I can get a Smartoard, which will probably mean that they can hang the projector from the ceiling, and run the cords to my desk - that's where I'll keep the laptop, and by that time I'll have a docucam as well. I do have a remote control for the powepoints, so I'm not stuck there, I can walk around.
    But I've found that I have to walk around way too much. I do like to be at different places in the classroom to use proximity, but I have to do it too much. I have things on my desk, I have the laptop, have to go the front of the class sometimes, I think that's why I've been so tired.
    Next year I will also move the desks a little further back, they're actually too far up front. Right now I can't, because then I'd have students sitting right behind me, if I'm standing next to the laptop, and I don't like that. Right now they're next to me. I can't move the projector back more, because the picture would be too big.

    Since it came up on another thread, you might want to look into Google Drive to back up any of the files (including presentations) you need in class. :)
