This has always been my motto.  Until today.

So, today, I went to organize my classroom.  I counted 7 supplementary books to go with my text.  Seven.  XII.  Is this what it’s come to?  What in the world was I doing in 8th grade English class?  I certainly don’t remember that many books. 

There are Literary Response Journals, Selection Support, Spelling, Daily Language Planners, Write Source, etc.  I can’t seem to wrap my brain around the amount of stuff I have.

I took a corner, made a space, and started putting novels up on the shelf.  I made a little corner for my stuff, my degrees, my special books.  And still…still…

Something about this is scaring me.  Perhaps it’s the fact that I have never read the anthology, but I don’t think so.
