Yay! I am excited for you. It is insane to think it is okay for anyone to teach/learn when it is that hot. We are just miserable and whiny and donít accomplish much on those days.
I am lucky, too. They finally started putting window A/C units in the fall in my building. There has been a piece of tape with letters A/C on my window taunting me all year. When I came in April, it was finally put in. I am so happy because it is supposed to be 95 tomorrow and humid.
Is your new classroom going to be bigger or smaller than your current classroom?

Oh that's good news! My dad's school is getting AC for the first time this summer as well. What's crazy to me is that he works at a private school. In a state where it's very hot/humid for several months of the school year. I keep asking him why parents would pay many thousands of dollars to send their kids to an environment that is subpar?? Maybe they don't think AC is that big of a deal for kids? I personally remember the days of sweating it out before we had AC in public schools (now, it's pretty much standard).

Oh yay! I remember those days before AC. I'm sorry that it took them so long to treat you and your students humanely.

Yeah! That's wonderful. Enjoy your a/c. I've been in non-air conditioned buildings in the middle of August in IL. It's not fun. Also, no learning gets done. Everyone is too hot to concentrate or think. The politicians and big wigs sitting in their nice, air conditioned offices downtown don't think about that.

Yay! We got it about 3 years ago and it's a game-changer.

Of course, we can't do anything right and I have huge, low ducts running through my room and the a/c frequently doesn't work right, but still it's glorious.

I don't let my students complain about being hot or cold. Dress in layers and be grateful. They have no idea how miserable a non-air-conditioned classroom can be!

It's bigger. It's actually a shared space that I use right now. It's a great space, but the huge windows make it really hot!

I am so happy for you! It will be so much better teaching in a room that's cool!

They finally put it in our building after I'd been teaching there for 38 years...and three months after school started, the building burned...sigh...

The next year we were in portables that had air conditioning (yay!) while they rebuilt the school. I retired at the end of that year. At least I had it for a little while!

You will just love it!

We have had aircon for some years (paid for by parents, the government didnít think it necessary despite temps of 110 plus in February). Of course, itís pretty much useless now as Covid protocols require us to have windows and doors open at all times. It hit freezing in my room this morning - we did reading in beanies scarves and gloves.

I am jealous!! Most of the buildings in my district are over 100 years old. The city and board are looking into buying former Catholic schools to move kids to as their school is knocked down and rebuilt. The cost to put ac in the older schools is astronomical and they wonít do it now. My school is at the end the ten year plan to rebuild, so no ac for us for quite a while.

So ridiculous! You can't tell me that there are many businesses where all of the offices are at freezing temps. Why is it okay for our kids and us to freeze or boil?
