This is the view from my desk in my class room.
If I go close to the window, lean in, and look far to my right,
I see a bit of countryside.
This is what I used to see from my desk in my first class room
at this school.
Below is what I see by standing near the window;
I don't have to lean in close to see this.
My friend Tracy has this view now.
I did before I was laid off for a year.
When I was called back, it was to replace a teacher who had retired.
I got her room.
I miss my old one.
This is the view my friend Alaina sees from her desk.
Her room is on the front of the first section of building.
Tracy's and mine are in that same section, but on the backside of that hallway.
For five years, I taught in a musty room on the second floor
with no windows.
There were no windows anywhere on that floor.
That was in Cincinnati.
One of my 'musts' for my next job was to have a room with a window.
You can imagine my joy when I got the view of the farm in the distance!
However, even though I don't have that view any more,
I do have a wall of windows
and sunlight does pour in.
So I'm still grateful for my room with a view.
