This week I went to school, eager to begin setting up my classroom and get ready for the first day of school. This is the first year since I have been with the TDSB that I am not moving schools or classrooms. I mentally rubbed my hands in pleasure, believing that I would not experience the stress of trying to finish my task before the bell rings on Monday at 8:45am.
When I opened the door to my classroom on Monday, I was taken by surprise:
Workers were in my room filling in the cracks and plastering over all the cement patches. Now I am to wait for the painter to come round and finish the work of improving the appearance of my room. I may not be able to begin preparing for 6 September, but I am grateful that my space is being painted. This year I will not need to cover all the bad patches with posters!
Lavender Ladi was grateful for star-filled nights.
Laura was grateful for respect.
