I’m getting a class set of laptops. That probably sounds like a weird thing to be complaining about, but consider the following things:
-A class set of laptops requires a laptop cart.
-The laptop cart was place in the middle of my classroom at the end of last week.
-There was no room for aforementioned laptop cart.
-Finding a place for the laptop cart required rearranging my entire classroom (probably long overdue, since the room’s been basically the same since I came five years ago)
-I have several heavy shelves and bureaus in my classroom.
-I have no measurable upper body strength with which to move said heavy objects.
-The strapping boys in my student government class were thrilled (yeah right) to help me.
-The boys, whom I love dearly, have a tendency to be L-A-Z-Y.
-There is only one set of shelves in my classroom that is painstakingly organized.
-The boys dismissed the suggestions of their teacher (who is obviously dumb as dirt) to remove the books prior to relocating the shelves.
This was also the day before Parent-Teacher Conferences. Good thing I managed to find it in me to laugh and take a picture. 🙂
