Just a few pictures of my office. It always has some clutter or another because I don’t have another space to store things…. and I am OCD in that if something is going to be used, or needs to be remembered, to be used, I want to keep it close at hand.
The best thing is that it is filled with books.
I can come here and, if I am planning,
I have everything that I have read at my fingertips.
Lesson planning or professional writing – resources are right here.
No, the best thing is that it is quiet.
There’s not much foot traffic down my end of the hallway.
I can play music, or have peace,
Depending upon what I need.
No, the best thing is that it has two huge windows
So that I can look out at what’s going on outside.
No, the best thing is that it is mine.
I have had whole rooms that I shared with colleagues.
I’ve had carts and been a teaching nomad.
I’ve had artificially lit rooms without windows.
I like this office the best.
