As I cleaned my room, I scanned it quickly with my eyes. Anything that would stand out to a parent? I looked over the bulletin boards, made sure I had the chairs set up in the hallway, and the table set up for conferences.
The memoirs! I had forgotten to put them out! I paused for a second, trying to remember where I had put them. Oh, that’s right! I made my way over to my desk and grabbed the large, bound scrapbook. As I walked out to the hall, I flipped through the memoirs. My students did a great job! I was so proud of them and couldn’t wait for their parents to read their published memoirs, mounted on scrapbook paper, and bound in the class memoir book.
I glanced at the clock as I walked back into the room. Only 5 more minutes until my first conference!
