room with a view

Today was our first official work day for the 2009-2010 school year, and the first day for students is this Thursday the 27th. Even though I missed Nathan terribly, it felt good to be in my classroom again, organizing my files and setting up everything just the way I want. I got new carpet in my room, and Jarred moved downstairs to a smaller room to make way for the incoming 7 year-old class, which is quite large this year with 11 students -- nearly a dozen! (That's considered a big class for our little school!) Jarred was put into last year's French classroom, which is annoyingly long and narrow, but everyone told him it had the best view in the whole building, so naturally, we couldn't wait to see it. Well, here's the room...


...and here's the view...

What a joke! Darn that one lousy tree! Sheesh... I suppose things could be worse. =)

That's a very strange classroom.

Our school building actually used to serve as the offices for a furniture factory, which still operates next door. So yes, the makeshift classrooms are oddly-shaped. A much larger, beautiful new school building is currently under construction just a few minutes down the highway, and it should be completed by the end of next summer, just in time for all of us to move there for the 2010-2011 school year.

The tree sucks but you can't argue with looking out at Noah's mountain when you go to work! ;-)
