Our school was exceedingly overcrowded this year. Every nook and cranny, trailer and workroom had to be utilized as teaching spaces. This nook was my art room.
Thankfully, the school year is over. Our school is losing 150 students to other schools. Aside from the fact that so many of the kids leaving are ones I adore, I can only imagine that this will impact us in the most positive of ways.
One thing that has made me joyous, is that I am getting my old classroom back. Just the mere thought of having a decent teaching space again has made me feel excited about teaching next year.
