The working girl went back to work.
Can you believe they are making me move to the classroom right next door? They are giving my room to the PE Coaches who teach Sex Ed. My bright, cheery classroom will now be stuffed to the gills with adolescents who don't know enough or who already know too much about sex. I liked it better when it was just me and my kids, reading The Giver or writing haikus.
The coaches already invaded my space. Yesterday, my last official work day, as I tried to clean off my desk and organize my filing cabinet, they all sat around and made comments about everything. "You really gonna throw that away?" / "Aww, look at Layendecker, she gonna cry about losing her classroom." / "Yo, Linds, you gonna leave us this desk chair?" / "You know, if we were married, I'd be in here clearing off your desk for another reason."
Needless to say, I didn't get any work done. So it's back to school today for a sexual-harassment-free day of cleaning and organizing and missing my students.
