Good morning Ladies, Gentleman and others. I wanted to take a moment to describe my new work area. So much has changed in the last few weeks and like you I am tryng to adjust to my new view.
My "Office" area is now shared with my 6 year old son. Half the table is my desk, the rest is his. I wake up first and try to organize everything so we can both find our papers and pens through out the day. I have way to many pens, but I need to still doodle and write in multiple colors to keep myself on task. The table never looks like this at the end of the day, but it sure looks nice at his moment!
I keep a few things out from my classroom, so I feel a little like I am still there. I brought home my flamingo tape dispensor, a picture of my godfather and son, reminder postits and my flying teacher ornament. These things make me smile and help me stay calm. My son has all his papers, assignments, a sketchbook, art supplies and his school class picture on his side.
Just like in my classroom, you can usually smell coffee, it is actually in the kitchen though, next to our new charging station, still just steps away.
There are way more distractions in this space. My son asking quesitons, his computers noise, my phone and computers sending messages, the TV in the other room, a record being played, request for breakfast, lunch and snacks and other noises I never had to think of at school.
This is just a glimpse of my new class setting. I am excited to hear about yours!
