Daisy’s desk on a big grading day – note that all the papers in the stacks need to be graded, the grades entered in the gradebook, and then the papers get mailed back to the students. Three tasks before I can call the desk “clear”.
How did I avoid taking an After Picture? The desk looks much better now. I’ve updated the gradebooks for all of my students, mailed back copious numbers of portfolio papers, and even took a few wet wipes to the desk surface. It’s so much easier to work now!
We were advised to keep the mailing envelopes for progress reports in a safe place. I stored mine in plain sight. With Fluffy and friends on guard, no one will mess with my envelopes.
