Corner View: Change


It's that time of year for me: time to transform my room
from empty to full.
Right now there are just a few boxes laying around.
Tomorrow I will get busy and put everything in their right places.



This bulletin board will change to being one about the students' activities--
their sports, band, 4-H, etc.
I can keep a better eye on this one and thus prevent students
from changing some of the pictures--usually another student
or a faculty member who they don't like!




That little rolling 'chest' holds the computer and projector
for the Smart board.
This is new for me this year.


Right now I have a movable one,
but . . .
I'm supposed to be getting a wall one like this one.




However, if I don't, I will be grateful for this.
Change is 'a'comin' and it will arrive in full force next Tuesday
when the empty halls and rooms will fill with students.

Check out Francesca's Fuoriborgo for more corner views.

  1. Nice clean and spacious classroom! In our schools, the students stay in their classrooms, and the teachers circulate - your system makes more sense to me.

  2. Old times!
    Soon this will be your second home again, full of discoveries, learning, improvements, deceptions, tensions, smiles, hungry eyes... humanity, in one word (in French we call those school years from 12 to 18 "Humanities". What about it in english?)
    Have a good 1st of September

  19. thanks for the comment on that guest post i did on hcb Focus. i liked reading all the comments because they all had such different things and memories to share.

    that machine on the wall...it looks space age!
    the kids will think that they're in college.

    cj starts on tuesday too. however they already gave them a day at camp, and thursday is a half day of getting to know the ropes and smooth out the freshman process wrinkles.

  20. the stanza of a new school year! how i (almost) wish i was there, perhaps just for the day. breath in chalk and new books and chitchat, and laughter filling my head. like i told you before, i may be the rebellious one in the corner, but i sure can listen too...
    oh, good luck with this new start, beth. have a pumpkin on the go... ;)))

  21. I always enjoyed getting my classroom ready for a new school year and September still represents new beginnings, new projects and new challenges. Every blessing, Beth. I know you will be a blessing to others. (I like the green colours in the room and hope it helps as a calming influence on all those lively young people)!
