I am now beginning the third school year at my school, and I am settling into my third classroom. The joke is that I am the “classroom fairy,” I make a room over, and I get moved. However, this move is particularly exciting! I am now the proud tenant of a room previously occupied by my English teacher predecessor, who had enough clout to have a wall knocked out, and her room made into a double room. Not only am I teaching 7th and 8th grade English this year, I am also teaching Drama, so the extra room has been a great resource!
Now, down to the fun stuff! Here are the befores:
This room was previously used for a special needs class and a latchkey program, and the previous English teacher left a lot of her stuff and it was never cleaned out. So, I had a LOT of work to do! This is the north side of the room…
…and this is the south side of the room. You may notice the random school furniture, including desks, tables, and lunchroom tables.
Notice the line where the wall used to be.
Obviously, this room was in need of some TLC!
