The adventures of a quilter, who is also a high school teacher.

August 2012 - Posts

The students come on Monday and my classroom is ready whether I am or not.    Not as I start my 26th year of teaching Family and Consumer Sciences (home economics)   I am as excited as ever, and a little nervous too.   But that is not really unusual.   Fortunately I can work on my crazy quilt block all weekend or a couple of Harry Potter Blocks.    Here are some pictures of my classroom.

1.  My door.  It was plain last year so I got this idea from some stuff off pinterst.  Love it.

2.  I can't believe I painted this bulletin board.  I think the courage came from reading so many post on this website.   I'm in love with butterflies, so the tree and my room is covered.

3.  My desk area is new.  I tried to high the mirror area last year.  This year I'm just trying to camflougue it.  My classroom use to be the clothing lab so it's left over from then.   It's now a Early Childhood classroom.

4.  The peg board has been a challengene to make useful to the subjects I teach.  I think I finally have.  I've at least dressed it up a bit.

One last highlight I now have a brown accent wall. It really makes the room have a center of focus, hopefully this will keep everyone on task.

Got to share a gift I got this week from a student.  She made this for me this summer while she was visiting family in Italy.  The saying is Italian for have a nice day.

One last highlight.   This year is my youngest daughter's senior year.  I caught her and two of her friends at open house Thursday evening and wanted to share.

  My daughter is the one in the middle. 


Hope everyone has a great day!
