I was told by my new school that the teachers would be able to get into their classrooms as soon as the summer camp there ended and we'd be able to work in our rooms Aug. 21st-30th (school starts the 31st). I showed up this morning at around 10:30 and NOTHING was ready for school. The summer camp people didn't clean up any of the their stuff. There were still decorations, art supplies, games, etc...all over the place. It was a mess. The vice principal was NOT happy that they hadn't cleaned anything so she started to help me get some of the junk out of my room so that I could get an idea of how much room I'm going to have and what-not. We made some real progress in there so I was excited, but then she said that I can't set anything up yet because they're going to be painting and cleaning the carpets this week!! What happened to having this whole week to work in my classroom?? I was really excited to be getting in there today and now I'm just bummed because I'm really not going to have a whole lot of time to get everything ready before next Thursday.
