Ladies and Gentleman, We Give You......A HOLE!

A few days after school got out, we check in on our new classroom and discovered....

It is clear that this picture shows how much work we have to do.  Try, if you can, to see past the hot mess and focus on the hole.....because it is glorious.

So, why the hole you ask?  A crucial aspect of our vision of collaborative teaching is the union of two classrooms into one.  We felt that we needed one continuous space so that students could move fluidly, but more importantly feel like one community.   We wanted to be in the space that allowed for the greatest openning and were placed into two adjecent portables.

At first, we were a little disappointed with the size of the hole, we were initially thinking that it was going to be bigger.  After we saw that we had 17 windows (17!!!!...ok, more like 7 - the key point here is that it's a lot of windows), we were thankful for the wall space that was left by what remains of the dividing wall.

In conclusion, this room is going to be amazing!  We would like to give a shout out to our AWESOME custodians who got everything moved, cut, and cleaned!  Thank you!

From the limb,
