Extreme Makeover: Classroom Edition

This year I am dedicated to feeling at home at school and in my classroom. I want the school to be a place where I want to be. Last year during much of the year I couldn’t wait to escape back to my house.

Hopefully this year that will not be the case. Our school recently changed from a pre-k to 8th grade school to a separate elementary and middle school. This is probably one of the best things for our students. Because of the change I was moved to a new classroom. I got permission from my principal to paint and I am very pleased by the results.

I got some inspiration from pinterest and my mom, husband and cousin helped me to carry out my vision. Here are the results of my extreme classroom makeover!
