I had in-service week last week and on Friday when I was chatting with other teachers they kept saying the were pretty ready for school to start and the more people who said that the more panicked I got that I was not feeling at all ready for school to start!!
Last weekend Alan helped clean up the robotics lab a bit and this weekend we went back for another marathon work session. It was great! I left this evening feeling a thousand times more ready for Tuesday. There’s still work to do, of course, and always will be, but I feel like I can do this!
Let me show you my library…
My new school. Not really new exactly, because the kids have been going here for years and I subbed here and did my student teaching here, but now it’s officially MY school too! 😄
New books are always exciting! (Those are not all the new books, just the ones that were on the shelf when I took the picture! There are lots more!!)
My first library bulletin board.
The Vermont corner. The three maps of the area came from Grandpa’s house. 💜
The reading corner needs to be a little cozier. Maybe I can find a nice cozy carpet or bean bag chairs or something.
Group activity area. Elizabeth made the green cushion and the rocking chair was Grandpa’s. He was a library kind of guy!
The computer/robotics lab has been underutilized the past few years since all the classrooms have laptops now. Alan got it all tidied and organized and I hope to put it to better use this year!
Arlo is a great library dog!! Next year I’m going to get him certified to come to school with me each day. The counseling team has a dog in school and I think the library needs one too!
