So I was debating whether to let you get a glimpse of the
These are BEFORE pictures. Please do not pin these to some sort of " what not to do: classroom edition" board. :)
Yup, that's it...take it all in. Yes, that is an area rug hanging over my rolling white board...yes that is my pocket chart and stand stacked on top of my counter ( precariously perched on top of all of the things I took off of my wall)....Yes, that is almost the entire contents of the black cabinet (that you can juuuuuusssttt make out in the right hand side of the picture) sitting on my student tables.
These are all of the files I took out of the bottom drawers of that cabinet....because you know, I don't have anything better to do than sort through all of these in a months time.
And this is to show you that I made a little progress. After emptying out the black cabinet so I could move it, I wound up putting it back where I had it before! Oh well, I still would have needed to take some of it out because my hubby got me another tall filing cabinet ( much like that black one) that I am going to move some of that stuff too.
This is what my teacher desk area looked like last year. If you follow me on Facebook you know I swapped out my teacher desk for a kidney shaped table this year. ( And oh yes, the contents of my desk are scattered through out the room as well!)
If you have some before pics to share to make me feel better about my mess, leave your link in the comments section. Thoughts on the new desk area? Let me know those too. :)
