Summer 2013 started with me spending a few days moving 23 years worth of teaching materials from C-3 into C-8. Since then I have been in school several days trying to organize and prepare my new second grade classroom. As of now, I have the basic classroom room arrangement set up (I think!), started painting the coat closet doors, and have sorted the teaching materials into various areas around the room. But there is still SO much more to do. I have also attended a writing workshop which gave me lots of great ideas for the coming year and have read several professional books too. Oh and I have gone shopping for school supplies for my classroom (several times) and signed up for a SEI class that I need to take next school year. I may not have my students in the summer but I never stop being a teacher…even in summer! More photos to follow as the room progresses….
