1) Almost as exciting as getting a teaching job, is getting the keys to my classroom :)
Here are some views of my naked classroom:
Students enter the class from a hallway that overlooks the strip and mountains!
I have the privilege of moving all that furniture!
Yup, that’s right a teacher and a student door: the teacher door leads to a secret hallway that connects all the science classrooms with the science teacher room, bathrooms, etc! And finally…
I know I want to put up a wall that is dedicated to pictures and cut outs of science in the real world and I’ve got some posters of my favorite Broadway shows (I’m all about being well rounded!) that all need to be hung somewhere.
I also have the biggest craving to paint all the walls Kermit the Frog green! If any one is reading this (since it’s definitely still summer vacation!!) I am looking for some input into how to set up and decorate the room. Please send me your clever ideas!
2) In other news: remember way-back-when when I blogged about the Channel 13 Celebration of Teaching and Learning? Well, I’ve just written them a post recalling some of the highlights of the weekend.
3) Planning for my first year will begin soon, so stay tuned for the “My First Year” series that I’ll be starting in the next couple weeks along the same lines as last year’s student teaching reflections.
