by: Sarah Reeves Young and Mike Roberts

This chapter is all about what to do when you are given your first classroom. As a science teacher, you often inherit a jungle of supplies that are organized in a way that only one person would understand … and that person is most likely retired and enjoying an umbrella drink on a beach, laughing at the new teacher who inherited the room! So how do you approach getting the classroom in order so it can be your space? This chapter provides helpful tips for exploring your new environment.
