Woke up this morning to yet another rainy day. I don't mind the rain, but I don't like being out in it. And like every good girl, I still have shopping to do for Christmas, plus some other errands to run. Like to school to unplug my printer and pencil sharpener. We have the Green Team that goes around making sure people comply with electricity regulations, and I don't want to be the one who gets a nasty note about it. Yep. It could happen. Mind you, the custodian is on the team, but he can't be bothered to clean my room!
Speaking of a clean room, my question to you all today is, how aften does your classroom get cleaned? And when it's cleaned, what do they do? When I first started teaching, my floors would be vacuumed every day or every other day and trash done daily. Now, my trash is dumped daily, but I can go a week without being vacummed. I was vacuumed a week ago Friday, and when I left on Friday afternoon for vacation, I was hoping I would be vacuumed before I got back (highly unlikely since the custodias are also on 3 week vacations. How nice.). Anyway, my whiteboard doesn't get cleaned, but maybe 2 times a year. My desks are cleaned by my kids and Clorox wipes and the cobwebs have been haging around for quite some time (like since last school year). The principal doesn't really know the schedule of the custodian and thinks that everything is good. I don't want to nag and complain, but I don't think I should have to teach in a dirty classroom, either. I make my kids pick up the trash, but after a week of no vacuuming, there is little stuff all over. It's kind of gross, really. Let me know your cleaning tales. I want to compare and see if we are all in the same boat, or if we just get the raw end of the deal at my school!
Happy Monday, everyone!
