Ode to My Unfinished Classroom
you have a nice, shiny new tile floor,
six brand new round tables,
chairs that match and aren't broken.
and a tiny window to see the light outside,
The goggle cabinet is on the floor,
and the clock is laying atop of that.
There are unfinished outlets,
the cord to my projector is gone,
and my screen is laying on a table.
I have no phone,
and my air conditioner seems to be missing!!!!
The guts of my classroom are shoved and scrunched into the girls dressing room.
I guess I will start moving things back in,
but I can't put anything away.............
My cabinets are still being manufactured;
at least three more weeks, they say!
I am trying to be optimistic,
but I am growing more anxious by the day.
School starts with students in LESS than TWENTY!
For the first week of school,
I hope the weather is cool and rain free.
For my students and I may be setting up class in a tree.
