We got an e-mail from our department head, Ms. Borrish, that the English teachers would be changing rooms for the 2nd time in two years. This makes sense, seeing how teachers never have loads and loads of teaching tools in their possession a move, let alone two, should be no big thing—wait a second…
Why can’t I stay in one place for an extended period of time? There are certain individuals who can't. For example, dubious individuals (like notorious criminals) can’t sleep more than one night in the same place out of fear of being caught or killed. I’m not one of those guys; I’m a nice guy. Of course, paranoid people would do that too. That may be more like me, I suppose. Oooh, the Incredible Hulk was a sojourner. It would be cool to be him.
Where was I?
Oh, I’m just saying that my classroom is a place which best represents my home. I spend all my time there with all the work I have to do. On most days, I take my lunch there, and I’ll even sneak a nap in there from time to time, so it’s extremely emotional to have my home moved on me again and again.
If there’s a plus side, then it’s the possibility of getting an upgrade on a room. Maybe next year I won’t get the room with a nasty purple stain in the shape of, as my student puts it, “a wang,” on the floor, like I did this year.
