I've never not taught in a classroom that I didn't believe I'd spend a few years in. As such, I've always made my classroom my own. My new position however is a year-long temporary position for a teacher who is on maternity leave and will be coming back the following year. I'm torn between making the classroom my own and preserving things for her return. I don't think I could teach an entire year in the classroom as it is, and she didn't really bother to clean anything up leaving student work, personal photos, and personal effects everywhere. The kids I have this year will never meet her, and I'm unlikely to ever meet her. What would you do in this situation?
