It’s a sunny Wednesday morning in early June and school is out for the summer at Anderson Elementary School. Kindergarten teacher Denise Trisch uses the time she would normally be spending teacher her students to move out of a portable classroom.
Trisch was given a permanent room that’s within one of the school’s many wings – an upgrade from the portable room because the permanent room has a sink.
“This is a good room, this is probably the best (room available),” Trisch said. “It’s bigger, it’s more appropriate.”
The portable lacked a sink, Trisch said, and was too small for her 32 students. The new room however is not without its kinks. It’s one of the many rooms at Anderson Elementary School, and within the entire district, in dire need of repairs.
