I honestly feel like I won the office jackpot in my new building - it was a dream to decorate and the space is wonderful! I think space is very important :)
Here it is freshly painted before I moved in. Ya, it's huge.
My first thought was "how am I going to fill all this space?"
Didn't take me long to figure it out ;)
I'm pretty in love with pennant banners like the one I made for
Sweetie Pea's birthday.
I think this one adds a festive flair to my office
(and obviously you can read all the letters in real life).
Ah, bookshelves...so neat and tidy in the beginning of the year.
I have to make an effort to keep them that way!
A close-up of my desk area. I found that table between the chairs on the side of the road, slapped a coat of paint on it, and now I LOVE it. A few throw rugs, pillows and potted plants do wonders to make the space inviting.
A little inspiration :)
I've always loved Maya Angelou's work, but this poem is particularly meaningful to me. I hope my students think so too!
Though it is hard to transition back to working full-time after such a wonderful summer with Sweets, I do like the routine of the school year. And, I love autumn. There is something special about back to school time!
