What’s in your desk drawer, and what can you infer from those contents?
So I am a neat freak, and by re-looking at my desk drawer, I may have a problem.
Timer: my trusty guide for making sure I have time for Reflection180
Jump Drive band & USB Keys: essential for my robotics class
Post-It Tabs: can you ever have enough? I mark everything I could possibly use in class
Calculator: I usually end up moving this thing out of the way
Problems without Figures: I am liking this resource this year
Command Strips: Never have problems with posters again
Erasers: Keeps those pesky pencil top poppers at bay
Pencil Sharpener: Have to have one of these for those students who keep those tiny pencils
Sub Clipboard: easy access for Subs without easy access for students
Looking at my desk drawer, I realize how little I am at my desk and therefore do not have a ton in it. I am OK with that, if I am not moving around I’m not doing my job. If I don’t have students moving around and thinking, I also am not doing my job. I think overall the lack of items and use of my desk is a good sign for my classroom.
