There have been lots of changes in my little world in the last couple of years. A new baby, a tornado that destroyed my school, a temporary school, portable classrooms, and finally a NEW job. Maybe since things have settled down I can keep this blog updated. There have been so many crafty and/or educational things I’ve done, taken pictures, and never got around to posting. I’ll (hopefully) do better.
I recently was offered, and accepted, a job at the high school in my community and I couldn’t be more excited to help grow the program.
Today I went to the new school and found out that I will NOT BE FLOATING but have a permanent classroom. The new classroom is basically a clean & blank slate. It’s white, with white trim, and accents of white. The previous teacher didn’t leave much as far as decoration- just a couple of cork-boards and those curtains. I took some pictures and plan to update as I craft and decorate for the new classroom.
Here is my room! This view is from the hallway as you walk in the door. I use my SmartBoard a LOT so I really want to move my desk away from that area.
I’ll probably keep the little curtains. They are cute – grey with a red trim. I may take them down and monogram a big “S” on each of them. Or I may scrap them and make some new ones. We’ll see!
This is a view from the back corner where I’m thinking about moving my teacher’s desk if there is power and internet there. Plus, I think I can see what the kids are doing better from this angle AND I won’t risk the in-house television falling on my head.
This final view is from where the teacher’s desk is located now! LOOK AT THAT STORAGE! I am going to have room for all 11 years (plus 6 years of summer school) of teacher supplies I have to find a place for AND have room left over!
The area between the cabinets and the green bulletin board is where I’m hoping I can put my desk.
I have a lot of ideas as far as decoration. I guess I should probably incorporate red into the theme. First, it is the school’s main color. Second, it is my favorite color. Finally, those desks are BRIGHT red and can’t be missed.
