I sometimes sweep my own floors if they are really looking messy. Last year
(my first year teaching) I did this a lot. This year (and for part of last
year) I have each table pick up around their space. This year I also added
art helpers who can help with the bits of paper towels that come loose from
the paper towel dispenser and wind up on the floor. If I notice that the
floors are starting to need me to sweep them, I try to be more careful about
having students pick up. A few days of picking up before they can leave
usually makes them more careful. I'm in middle school so this works well
most of the time.:) Genie Holt, Wickenburg
