Student 2: He's a messy teacher. I had him last year. He can't write either, but you'll learn in here though...
My handwriting is an abomination.
My room is generally in various states of "a mess." My room at home is this way, my car is this way, and I have always been this way. It has very much worked out for me in my professional and academic career, but I can see how it would be off putting to administrators. If the Superintendent walked into my room, he'd probably give me some sort of Superintendent ticket for the room not looking like a traditional classroom.
My desks are in weird formations, my teacher desk is usually covered in papers and folders and stacks, my shelves are used mostly for storage and not for organization, but it works for me and it works for my students. The weird thing is that some students have asked me to clean my desk. When I get that request, I do it just for them.
My creative clutter gives me what I need to serve my students. I can't / don't want to do it like everyone else because I'm me. In this era where we try to make everyone teach the same way, I struggle to embrace my individuality. Most days, I am successful. As long as your kids are learning, do you.
