So I'm down to two days of summer. As a new teacher this year I have to go back a week before all of the other teachers. But, I am actually looking forward to it. I have been getting some very good "vibes" from Clear Creek ISD and am getting very excited. I went to visit my new school and was pleasantly surprised with the school and my new room. In some schools new people don't necessarily get a prime room, they get the rooms that the veteran teachers don't want. So needless to say I was not expecting much....but I was very surprised. I received an all in one lab and classroom...done well, and will function well. The lab tables are built into the side walls with walls of EMPTY cabinets! There is a sink, electrical plug and internet plug at every station. Then in the middle of the room is where the desks will go. I have a projector and an ELMO! Thoes of you who do not know what an ELMO is, its an updated overhead projector...no transparencies needed, just put what you want to show under the light and it projects it...in color! Woo Hoo! And I also have a storage room, in my room. That is really nice! I don't have to go down the hall to do anything! Now we can work at our desks, stop and slide over to do the lab!!! I know, only exciting for a science teacher, but I had to gush for a bit...I'm even planning on taking pictures and posting them...yes, I am a nerd...embrace it.
