Picture it

We've had illness in our house lately. Even the dog threw up on Wednesday. So today, I leave you with a picture one of my colleagues took last week.



Mrs. D thinks to herself, "How shall I torture my students today?"



And now you can see how messy my desk area is. Let's see what weird, off, or unusual things you can find in this picture (besides me of course). For example, notice what I am working on. Not grading, but a Kakuro from math week.

Oh my goodness - messy desk? You can SEE WOOD on your desk. My friend, my friend - when I was teaching I had a messy desk. That desk? It is not messy.

I just discovered your blog, and I must say that you are SO fun to read! Is that stapler the 30 pound gun slinger stapler?
Is that a remote control I see?

What is that wierd sheep pillow thing above your head?

It looks like you have a great job. I love your blog and I have so much reading to catch up on!

MESSY?!?! That's messy? You should have seen mine! Of course, for half of my teaching years, I didn't have a classroom of my own, only a desk in the corner of one of the classrooms, so it was more of a dumping ground on my way to another room than an actual workspace. But still.

I love you, Rachelle. Love your blog too. Just thought I'd tell you that on this fine day of crapiness.

Sickness seems to be the common theme among blog-land these days. So sorry! :-(

Umm...your desk does not look messy to me. :-)

Have fun torturing the students!!

That is definitely a remote control. I agree with the masses, your desk isn't messy in the least! You should see the desk I work on every day! If you can see wood... it isn't messy.

This is like a fun game! I see pictures of Camden behind you. A strange small yellow pillow, there's a person on it with a pencil through it's head. A picture of a wheel barrow? Purell. A remote control. Do you watch T.V. while you teach. Ha ha. Some recyclables on the floor. You do look thoughtful! Hope you feel better soon!
