Well, I’ve wanted to post about a million pictures of my classroom, but I think I have pretty well contained my enthusiasm and have only posted a few. This post, however, will be chock full of them, so be prepared. 🙂
I’ve spent the past two days in my first ever official teacher workdays – staff meetings and small attempts at collaboration all included. I spent the better part of five hours today solidifying my classroom set-up and my plans for tomorrow and the next day (which were changed from my original plans due to the rally and tour schedule announced during staff meetings).
I have had a lot of fun setting up the classroom and I am attempting to incorporate as much eye candy as possible so that if I do end up with students who would rather look around the room than talk to their classmates or to me, they have something educational and/or inspiring to fill their little minds.
So, without further ado:
Welcome to my classroom
“Middle School Survival” kits set up alongside student planners – idea stolen here:
My “office” area:
Student point of view:
Clock ( edit: I know the You’re is wrong 🙂 It’s been fun having the kids find it)
Reading area from the floor perspective (I was so tired, it was nice to sit)
Assignment Collection area:
Writer’s toolbox and extra tools cart
Quotes Everywhere ( evil laughter….):
Honestly people, I think I’m pretty happy with all of this – there are a few things I will add in the upcoming months, but once there is student work on the walls, I think the classroom will look rather well loved and lived in.
Thanks for touring with me – now, I’m off to attempt to sleep before my first day of school!
Go YG Warriors!

One thought on “Back to school…for the first time?”
Yep, made me cry. It’s beautiful, and every thoughtful touch represents hours of hard work on your part. I am incredibly grateful to have you a friend and daughter.
