This is the second time it’s happened, and it just puts a cramp on the day. Yesterday when I left school my classroom was left unlocked from the inside with all of my teaching materials left inside. However today, upon my arrival to school I learned that someone decided to lock the door to my classroom. There really shouldn’t be a problem with locking the classroom, but we are in the old courthouse building and never received all of the keys to this building, and so I am locked out of my classroom.
I arrived early to mark the children’s work and get their lessons ready for the day, only to find out I can’t get in.
Last time this happened I was locked out for two days until someone found a way to get in (and then they forgot to lock the outside door, which lead for intruders to come inside the school and raid the supply closet leaving us without a lot of our art materials).
Teaching shouldn’t be about these kind of building problems. It is difficult enough teaching a multiability multiage classroom that it is hard to be without our space and supplies.
