My classroom finally came together

Working about 10-14 hours a week for the last 2 weeks have finally paid off! You saw the "before" pictures of my classroom. Now here are pictures from the first few days.

Looking back at the first pictures, I'm AMAZED how well it all came together!!! I did a damn good job, if I do say so myself. The kids all seem to love the new room, and all the parents told me tonight that it seems so much bigger and the coat cubbies in our room (for the first time) are starting to grow on me.

Unfortunately, my desk corner is still a mess. Even worse is that it is at the front of the room this year, when it used to be at the back. At the end of last year, I just threw things in boxes and labeled them "To Be Filed". Yep, they still need to be filed. Amy swears that my area actually looks organized, but I can tell that it is still close to looking like this mess from last year!

I'm very proud of myself, and all the hard work has paid off! We had district meetings, an ice cream social / classroom sneak-peek on Sunday night, first full week of school, and Back to School night all in one week and I'm still alive to post about it! :)

Pin It!
