Closing the Teach For America Blogging Gap
Aug 29 2009


We start with kids on Monday. My classroom is ready, relatively speaking. All the crucial things are up on the walls and I’ve got my plans and copies all set. It’s going to be an awesome first day.

One thing that I have been aware of this week in making poster after poster is that I am very clumsy with my markers. I ALWAYS have marker all over my hands. Does anyone else have this problem? I mean, I know they’re “non-toxic,” but seriously. This can’t be good.

Also, I apparently have forgotten how to cut paper straight. Almost every piece of butcher paper I cut out was extremely crooked and needed a patch. And I also have difficulty in getting staples to actually go all the way into the wall. Most of them stick out about a centimeter.

But, it’s done. And I think it looks nice. Bring on the kiddos!
