Good fences make good neighbors, right? How does that apply to roommates?
Don’t get me wrong, the reading teacher I share my room with is GREAT. She’s always helpful, loves kids, and is fun to talk with.
She’s just kind of a pack-rat. And, you know, she’s been at it for a while and so has accumulated an impossible amount of "resources." Plus, last year we got a new reading series with tons and tons of materials.
So it’s getting a little tight. Fortunately, I’m a minimalist. And I’ve always had at least two schools, so if I don’t feel like I want to carry it to and from my car several times a year, I toss it. In that way, then, Dawnette and I are a good match because she uses lots of space and I don’t use so much.
But then some things don’t make sense. I’ll let the pictures do some of the talking.
a week before the first day of school
|the FIRST DAY OF SCHOOL|
How does your room get worse for the first day of school? How does it get messier?
Despite it all, I still had a group that day – on the other side of the room. It was fun to see a 10-year-old squeeze through.
