Goals in Sight
Ahh what a day! I don't think there is any feeling comparable to walking into a classroom that is absolutely empty, and in a few magical weeks, transforming into a space to inspire young minds!

We have daily classroom meetings in room 10! I love this. It brings us together and lets the students know they are a part of a team! I…

I think hope I'm almost done! I have the back part of the room done, tables set up, cubbies organized, and curtains hung. Now I'm waiting on our class list to see if I need to add more tables. After, almost 2 weeks of hot gluing, hanging, rehanging, and sweating in the warm building, I can say I'm so thrilled with the results.
