    I cherish that clip! As a kindergarten teacher (with a BA in theatre) the principal marched in my room after the first week and told me the crayon boxes were too messy. She insisted I get one basket to pass around for each table. Last week, she wrote on her observation report that the crayons shouldn’t be on the desk, but put away in the basket. I think it’s just fine that 5 year olds have a handful of crayons by their paper to use when coloring. Also, why are Supts and principals and learning directors coming by weekly now to observe? I’ve been teaching 13 years without such scrutiny. Common Core standards are supposed to allow us to go back to creative lesson planning, Are we too top heavy with administration nowadays. I wonder if they are are boondoggling nowadays?!
