What's on YOUR teacher desk?

What's on YOUR teacher desk?

" If a cluttered desk is a sign of a cluttered mind~ of what~then~ is an empty desk a sign?" Albert Einstein

If someone came and sat down at YOUR desk~ what would be THREE things on your desk that they would notice?(other than papers that need marking and only one can be a photograph)

Although I have retired from teaching(after 32 1/2 years)~ many of items that were on my desk are now on my desk where I work at home.
* A marble paperweight that says-"A cluttered desk is a sign of genius"
* A photograph of me when I was in 6th grade(my students always got a chuckle looking at this one).
* Lots of inspirational and teaching items such as a wooden school house with the words~" Teachers touch the Future".
