New Office Space!

Sunday, July 1, 2018

I'm starting a new chapter and I am so excited!  Most of my career I have worked in (and attended) Christian schools. A couple of years ago I decided to try a local charter school. I loved the experience and learned a ton about teacher professional development, Common Core, and standards based grading. My students were awesome and I received wonderful pay. But, the experience confirmed in me WHY I love Christian school education. There is nothing like being able to openly pray with students and disciple them in biblical truth. And although I truly believe that Christian educators belong in public schools, I knew it wasn't for me.

I am stepping back into administration and am blessed to join a wonderful Christian school. Usually at this time of the year, I am posting pictures of things I'm getting ready for my classroom. So, this time I am posting changes to my office! I'm not quite done, but it's a start! First...the before pictures:

Wallpaper tan on the top and blue on the bottom. Nothing wrong with it! I just wanted an updated look. It also didn't quite feel like me.

Love the closet space!

We started by moving in my tiny desk. It's a little, old desk I bought a few years ago off Craigslist. I like the old feel and clanky drawers.

We removed the wallpaper (thanks, Linda!) and painted the top part cream. We aren't done with the bottom portion yet so ignore it in the pictures!

I bought 2 adorable chairs from Target. Someone noticed that kids might pee in them. Eeks. So I bought stools in cute colors for the kids. 

I bought a cute coffee bar from Wayfair and made a coffee sign using my iPad. I brought in my old Nespresso machine and bought a new one for home. I want to be able to serve yummy espresso!

Finally, here is the back of my desk. Of course, I have to have a lamp and essential oil diffuser. The chair is also an old one I picked up from a garage sale and had at home. It's not super comfy but I hope I'll be up walking around a lot. 

Finally, I've been having fun following Principal's Principles! I love her tips and goodies. She has a great book I purchased with fun ideas for staff morale throughout the year. I'm having a great time working on engaging in-service days. 

I'll post more pictures when we are done with the bottom portion!
