Day 8: What's in your desk drawer and what can you infer from those contents?
I'm really proud to say that I no longer have a teacher desk! I have a small table up front for the doc camera and my laptop, but other than that, I don't have my own desk in the room.
I have cabinets, closets and some shelves which I'm slowly figuring out how to organize so that I have easy access to the stuff that I need, but I've gained a significant amount of space in my room.
When I taught elementary school, I got rid of my desk and it was the best thing. It forced me to spend more time with my students, sitting with them at their tables since I didn't have my own desk. It got me into the habit of constantly roaming the room and engaging with my class.
Granted, sometimes I misplace things or don't know where I've put them, but I lost stuff all the time even when I had a desk.
But when I did have a desk, I always had gum.
