2013-14 Classroom Reveal!

I was beyond excited to set up my brand-new 2nd grade classroom this year. A brand-new room, my first time teaching 2nd grade, and FINALLY a permanent full-time position! In the past I'd been a specialist and shared a room with another teacher, so I was never able to really set up my room how I'd like. This year was so liberating because the room is all mine and I could finally create my dream room!

 Welcome to room 12! Come on in!

    1. Thank you Marcy!! I worked a lot in August to get it ready for the 1st day, but I love how it turned out!

  2. Your classroom looks amazing! I'm so happy that you have a full time position. It seems like we were just at Panera Bread talking about how much you wanted this. Yay! Maybe some day I can even see your classroom in person. :) I forget which district you're in. I remember you lived semi-close to me. Have a great year!

  4. I commented above under my husband's name some how! I'm from Portland too (grew up there)! I just found your blog. Your room looks incredible! I wouldn't even hide your supplied behind a curtain. They are so organized. I love the labels on them.
    What school do you teach at? I'm a kindergarten teacher in Salem.

    1. Hi Mara! I teach in Reynolds in Portland! I got those monthly boxes from Really Good Stuff about 6 years ago, love them!

  5. Where did you get those boxes that you have your monthly materials in?
