She informed me that she was sorry to say I wouldn't be teaching her daughter after all (whew!), and then took me out to the main part of the room. She pointed out the smart board, projector, TV, and entire front teaching table/ lab/ desk like my teachers had when I was in the high school math/science magnet program. I was practically salivating just thinking of all the potential.
I just couldn't believe that there were resources in the closets and the classroom. On a random tangent, maybe this explains why people always say that I travel heavy- it must be a science teacher thing. Needless to say, I'm going to have to find at least a day to go through and inventory what I have and where it is so that I don't waste it or buy more of something we already have. This is probably my biggest adjustment thus far, though I imagine this time next week, I'll be commenting on what the chorus of 30 voices sounds like all at once, or what it's like when more students than attended my college are all in the hallways changing classes at the same time. Once upon a time, I was used to this organized chaos, noise, shuffle, and bright display of non-uniform clothing. I'll get used to it again, but for now, I'm relishing the opportunity to observe the changes and soak them in.
