I have a secret to share with all of you.
A big secret.
One I have been DYING to share with you but I had to wait until just the right time.
You know my beautiful kindergarten classroom?
The one with all the pretty colors?
The one that was a finalist for the Schoolgirl Style Challenge?
I moved out of that classroom this summer.
I know what you are thinking. Yes, I was nearly in tears as I packed it up. I loved that classroom SO much and I know that many of you did to.
You probably also want to know why I had to move. It’s actually a happy story. My school bought a new building. So all of the teachers have a huge job of packing up, moving, and setting up brand new classrooms this summer. While the new-to-us building may not be brand new, it is a HUGE step up from our old facilities.
Even though my new school building is absolutely beautiful, when I first walked into my newly assigned classroom, I had to take a deep breath. It’s a little smaller with lower ceilings and MUCH smaller windows. I loved all of the natural light my old classroom had to offer and I now need to get a little more creative with my use of color and space. This is how my classroom looked on day one.
I know it doesn’t look like much. It’s ok. You can admit it. The room actually looks a little ugly in these photos. But I am not the kind of girl that can tolerate a bland classroom and I have been very busy trying to spruce it up. I even gave some of my Instagram followers a sneak peek at some of my classroom improvement antics.
By now, the transformation is well underway and the room looks so much prettier than it did when I first walked through the door. Of course, I have big plans for my classroom and I am determined to make it even more wonderful than my previous teaching space. I’m pulling out all the stops this year and I can’t wait to reveal the finished classroom to you in a few weeks.
My new classroom is now complete and absolutely beautiful. Check out my photos and find links to create a similar theme in your own classroom.
