Introducing...

My new classroom!!! (Don't misread the exclamation points--I'm not really all that excited, especially after FIVE hours of lesson planning for the upcoming week. I know it will get easier. I think. I hope.)

Now bear in mind that this room, along with the six other classrooms in this very large portable, had been used as a dumping ground for materials for TWENTY-FIVE years. Count 'em. That's twenty-five years. When I walked in on day one, all ready to move in with my boxes, I hadn't counted on hauling boxes of textbooks from the seventies OUT first. (On a related note, teachers are pack rats... THROW IT AWAY PEOPLE!!)

Anyways, here's the spiffed up version (you may recognize stuff from years past on my wall-- no time to be creative this time around...):


The "Put your best foot forward" is for students to display their personal goals for this year. The empty yellow bulletin board above the red chairs is for language arts stuff.

All that's missing is some students and a busy teacher!

Looks like you can take 50 steps in both directions, have functional space and a real learning environment! Woohoo. Gone are the days of cramped quarters and hopefully bad administrators! :)

Sarah--everything looks great! You did a nice job and I can only imagine how many hours it must have taken to get set up (including getting rid of junk first). Your steps theme is really cute! And that's what teachers do: reuse and recycle stuff! Glad you kept all of your materials, huh? :) Good luck!
