Back to School!

Is it really MONDAY!??!!

The Monday I report back to school!? Say it isn't so! 

I have 4 more days to get my room in tip top shape before open house.

the kiddos (students) officially return Aug. 15th for their first full day.

This year I have to:

Learn 600 names. UGH

I get to stay at ONE school. Not traveling this year is a huge plus!

I am really likin my art room! it has a ton of cabinets for storage which helps! :) 

I ordered this manners poster to hang by my art room rules. I think they go hand in hand! :) 

I wish I had crafty involved parents that brought me/made me this as a gift!

This picture inspired me to make some Pom Poms to hang above my art tables

And lets not forget people...The golden rule for school is that....

Wish me luck!!!



  1. You traveled around to different schools last year (or years past)? Wow! Were they all in the same district? I mean, how do you get hired for multiple schools?? Anyhow, I can only imagine how happy you are to be at 1 school!!

  2. I can't believe school starts so soon! I start student teaching this year, so I'm really excited :)
