I went into school to see how things were coming along in my new room and I was amazed! When I left for the summer there was a big black tube/door that led to an old photo developing room. It was hard to be in my room and not look at it. At first there were concerns about getting rid of it since a new school code door would have to be purchased and those are pricey. We also were not sure of the damage the installation had caused to the floors and walls. Today though I walked it and it was gone! Along with being gone all of the equipment previously in it was gone! The floor for the most part was perfect as well where it once had a metal ring on it supporting the door. A small welcome mat time rug will cover and imperfections. The custodians also were prepping the floor in my room for stripping and waxing. The floor already looked a million times better as well. I have amazing custodians in my building! I really need to think of a gift for them at the start of the year. I know they will probably never read this, but a HUGE thank you to Terry, Jay, and Rueben!
Care to take a look at more before pictures of my room? Keep on reading :-)
A ton of my supplies on the wall on the hallway side. You can see all of my drawers and cabinets! At the end of the counter is a sink. This is the only bulletin board in the room currently.
in the building so we had some interesting boxes to pack in. You can see my beautiful pink containers from the Container Store. I am hoping to paint this wall. My awesome head custodian took down a bunch of brackets from old screens and patched all the holes in the wall. YAH! I am so happy my cabinets are gray so it goes with anything :-). Many rooms in my building have 70's colored cabinets and closets.
The end of my cabinet going into the hallway. All of my furniture and a bit more of my teaching materials are in the hallway. Looking forward to moving my bookshelves into the new space.
This is the door and the only wall without permanent furniture on it currently. I will probably put 2 book shelves here. I love all of the outlets! I might have to put a lamp here as well.
Lonely pencil sharpener on the wall. I will probably take this down since I don't like this style.
Door number 2 in my room that leads out to the district copy center. I am super close for copies! I am excited because our copy center para will make a great neighbor :-) You can see the phone as well. I am not sure if I am going to leave it there or get a longer cord so I can move my desk elsewhere in the room.
This is the front wall. The whiteboard needs some attention, it should clean right up. The blue at the top was a previous paint application that at one point for some reason was covered up with boards. We took the boards down so my Smartboard could easily go up and not be in danger of coming down off the wall. I can't wait for my Smartboard to be installed, I am glad it got to move with me.
clssroom! :-) The open door in this picture used to be enclosed. Now you can't even tell. It is an awesome space through there. You can also see my glass cabinet. I will love fixing things up for that. Currently it is just holding junk, but that will not be staying there.
