Firstly, let me just say I’m not trying to be mean and please don’t take offence, but it’s true.
Just take a look in any teachers’ staff room or kitchen area, this is a staff room in Japan and I think it proves that this is a global issue!
I’ve decided to do something about this, starting with the staff room in my own school. I’ve begun the process of tidying – I was pretty disgusted this morning when I had to put someone’s cereal bar wrapper from yesterday in the bin. I mean, how hard is it to put something in the bin – the room can’t be more than 12 metres squared!
Anyway, I’m determined that by the end of this week that room will be tidy, for the benefit of all my colleagues…
