Oh my! I don't even know where to begin - with this blog AND with my classroom!

So I get to school to set up a little bit so that there is less to do when I go in to decorate...and this is what I find! Everything was very clean, thanks to the crew, but...AHHHHH!

We all know what this kind of thing does to us teachers - ahhh!
It makes us work furiously until we get all of the things in their proper place, even if it means climbing on other things, sweating, getting bruises, and making really loud noises as we drag heavy items across the floor. Does any of that sound familiar to all of you? I would guess - YES

So here is my room as I enter the doorway...

You can see the remnants of some of the cute things I will be showing you all once it is all put together...
like the cute little signs in the window...or the banner I had for the homework board (looks like that banner has seen better days...)

This is the picture that really worries me!
This is the view from behind my desk... Looks like a shelf was too heavy so they unloaded all of the books into my recycling bin!
All I can say is...I CANT WAIT to make this CUTE!!! Stay tuned for after pictures!!!

 Here is a little something for all of you who use TpT...
I hope I am not the only one who thinks, "this is SOO me!"


  1. I am excited to see photos of your room afterwards!

  2. I was in my classroom today, too, and I had the same reaction when I opened my door. I'm moving into a new room so it was even worse than your picture! But with the help of two very fine high school boys who are working at the school for the summer, we got it arranged in just a couple hours and I'm feeling good about it now!

  3. I can't wait to see the after photos.
    Love the card, I can tell you that I feel the same way every time I have to have some work done. :)

  4. I can't wait to see what you do with your room!
