Size Matters!

Wow, now it looks like my cluster is moving with me to Room 622!  The problem with this scenario is that my current room is 34ft x 26ft, while this new room is only 28ft x 25ft.  So, of course, I complained, and was told to pick from 613, 615, 616 or 619.  However, these rooms are 28ft x 24ft or smaller!  

If I had my druthers, I'd stay right where I am.  The logistics of this move are so phenomenal, not to mention the tremendous expense, that maybe it just won't happen....  I can dream, can't I?  

Another possiblilty is Room 620.  Now, this is not an English room, it looks like Earth Science, so I guess its off limits.  But, if I could persuade the powers-that-be to let me have it, its a bit bigger so not a bad choice (28ft x 30ft).

Regardless, to fit in a 30ft or 28ft space as opposed to a 34ft space will necessitate new furniture.  Right now I have 2.5 ft x 3.5 ft desks.  Half of each desk is taken up by the student's "PC desktop," the other half is the student's "wooden desktop."  I have these desks arranged in 3 rows of 8 desks.  This arrangement fits lengthwise in the 34ft space I currently have in Room 429 leaving a nice 3-4 ft aisle down the middle.  We won't have this luxury in any of the new rooms.  Maybe 2ft x 3ft desks will work better?

Learning with Technology,
