Countdown to Summer...
I'm almost finished packing my office. I still have my calendar on the wall, my water bottle, my speaker dock for my iPhone/iPod, my glue gun and glue sticks and a handful of pens and such. Less than a box to pack, for certain.
I'm simply concentrating on making what's left in here easily understood by whomever takes over the position. So I have copies of things they'll need right away on the desk and labeled binders on the bookshelf and sticky notes on a couple of random things.
Other than that, I just have the typical end-of-year stuff to do. Making room for all the classroom stuff that will come back like document cameras and things. Shelving the million books coming in. Taking payments on the lost ones. Repairing the beaten ones and deleting the ones that are too far gone. Shifting sections to accommodate the books coming back that don't usually ever take up shelf space, like the K section in fiction for Jeff Kinney.
I'm trying to hold off on thinking too much about my new position until I'm finished with this one, but it's difficult. I'm so ready to start! I'll probably be over there the day after Memorial Day if they'll let me in the building. There's so much to learn about the place and so much to do!
Friday will be our last 4th/5th grade book club meeting. It'll be mostly a party with free frozen yogurt and books. Woo Hoo!
What are your summer plans?
