Finally, a Classroom Reveal :)

Hello all,

I know it's almost the end of's fall after all.  But, I am finally ready to show you what I have made of my new classroom.

If you have been around for a while, you know that I have changed jobs, changed schools, and pretty much changed everything that there is to change...

Change is good.
It's good for my soul, that's for sure.

So, sit back and enjoy my new view:

First, let me show you the focal point of my classroom.

I love it!  It is so bright and cheery and several people still stop by daily to pop in and let me know how inviting it looks.  It's kinda hard to miss a bright orange sofa.

Back story:  My in-laws moved to town this summer and sadly luckily their sofa wouldn't fit up the stairs to their bonus room.  So, I said, "Hey, I know just the place for that sofa!"  I mean, duh.  How perfect is it?

I've had the opportunity to sit on it a few times to read some books with my ELL students and they love it!  (So do I.)

Mostly, though, we sit here:

See the cute, yellow chairs?  Donors Choose, baby! Thank you, donors and Donors Choose!!

Reading nook:

Complete with a few yellow chairs.  I still need another bookshelf.

One of my filing cabinets made it's way over to my new school.
Don't worry, I replaced it at my old school ;)

And, what classroom is complete without a few poof balls hanging?

That's one of the reasons it's taken me so long to post these pictures.  I just hung them last week.

So, there you have it.  Wish you all could come visit and sit on the big, orange sofa with me.  I'd make you a coffee.  For real, why don't you stop in?


  1. Your room looks gorgeous and comfy Elizabeth! I love the couch and the framed posters behind it! :)

  2. Melissa told me you posted and I flew right over!!! Pure perfection!! That orange couch is so cheerful it completely makes the room, I adore it!! Your colors are so happy and inviting, and I would love nothing more than to hang in your room with you!

    PS I still haven't posted mine yet, I need to do that asap!!!! I just got new chairs from Donors Choose too!!

  3. I love how bright and cheery your classroom is. The area with the couch is absolutely perfect!

    Fit to be Fourth

  4. Beautiful!! I agree, change is good for the soul. I haven't really had time to post anything all month! I do tonight, but realized I don't have any pictures! I must rectify the situation tomorrow! Love your new space!
