This is something that I do ever…single…day. I cannot or will not leave my classroom at the end of the day with my desk a mess!
The only time that I sit at my desk is at the end of the day during my plan time. That means that throughout the day I am constantly throwing items on my desk. As you can see there are some days that I have trouble finding the surface.
I make it a MUST to make sure that my desk is cleaned off and that everything is in its rightful place before I pack up my bag to head home. I never regret it, because I know that I will be thankful when I return the next school day!
