Well today was my last teacher work day before students walk through my door. It was a long day full of lesson planning, room preparing, and copy requesting. A productive day if I say so myself.
I thought someone out there might like to see where I spend my 9-to-5, er more like 7-to-3. Plus, I always want to remember what my first classroom looked like. It's all about the memories.
(Oh and don't judge my creativity or lack there of...remember I am a middle school teacher, not an elementary teacher...we don't get crafty on a regular basis)
|This is as much for myself as for the students. Bright and cheery :)|
|The view as you enter. My desks are always like this. It's different than most teachers but I like it because it allows me to move around the room easily and for more student-student-teacher interaction.|
|View from opposite side|
|This is "Homework Center." Students turn in work here that's on time, late, or absent labeled by their appropriate hour.|
|I LOVE this bulletin board fabric. It's fun and kind of cheesy, and full of a lot of color.|
|This is what I'm calling the "student center." Last year, I regularly had students coming to my desk to use the stapler or get tape, etc. And I don't like students all up in my business, ya know? So this table has all that and more.|
|And here is my desk. Last year it was in the opposite corner of the room and it was just awkward all year long. So far, I'm loving this new set up. My corner is a little sparse but some family pictures are coming :)|
Yay for teaching. I adore it.
Let the year begin!
