I've been placed in the lovely, room 212 for this school year. I must say after teaching on a "cart" for a year and sharing five different classrooms with other teachers that it's great to have my own space to create into the ideal learning environment that i've always wanted for my students.

SO, ya'll I did just that! I've probably spent a total of 70+ hours of my summer: painting, gutting, scraping, thrifting, spray painting, gluing, decopaging, sewing, stapling, cutting, arranging, and moving into this truly...sacred space. I've never spent so much time getting one room ready for students before and I think I did it because I wanted to continue to teach who I am and I had to do that in a space that looked appealing and felt calming.

I want to welcome you all to your learning space and just say that i'm so proud to be your teacher this year and to learn with you! Please be mindful as you move through this space of the unpaid hours and dollars and cents I put into creating it for us and treat it with the same respect as you treat me and yourself, as this space is as much yours as it is mine. Cheers!
