Way back to September 2nd and the first day of school. In case you haven’t heard….
Yep, I graduated. I am in a brand new school and I’m teaching first grade!
The beginning of the school year was a little bit difficult because of a tiny organ in my stomach. My gallbladder. Two weeks before school started, I found myself in the emergency room with pancreatitis. After a couple of nights in the hospital, I had surgery to remove my gall bladder. Needless to say, having surgery right before school starts is quite stressful!
But, the good news is, I’m all good now, and I am loving first grade!! So, here’s a quick flashback to a post that should have went up a while back!
Here is a peek into my new, LARGE room! I am spoiled with this HUGE room, and the amount of storage space. Our classroom is definitely “lived in” now, so these are NOT perfect, organized clean pictures of my room. This is real life :)

Also from the back.
This photo is from the doorway. I LOVE this big countertop and the storage underneath! The children love to sit here and work. You can see their mailboxes, and the books that they check out each night to read at home.
This is our carpet space, where the magic takes place :).
See that gray cart in the corner? That’s my laptop cart. I’m super lucky to have access to a class set of laptops AND 6 ipads!
Looking back from the front of the room. See those cabinets? LOVE.
I LOVE our classroom library, and so do my kiddos! They are so cute when the pull up the yellow stools and put their feet up while they are reading in the comfy chairs!
Our Daily Focus board is my favorite part of our room. It really helps to focus my teaching and the children refer back to it constantly!
The children’s book boxes are stored here.
Our specials schedule and our rules against bullying.
I hope you enjoyed my little tour!
