Office Tour

I'm still here!

I have survived the first half of the first week of school. I have spent most of my time getting my office together and organizing everything for the school year. I even took pictures of my office on my BlackBerry. I am not done decorating; I need to fill my walls with posters, but you can get an idea of where I spend my days!

My half of the office (I share with the Speech Language Pathologist)

My kid table topped with bins of crayons, toys, and other things I need to assess students

My desk

My filing cabinet plastered with motivational sayings from the principal. I have since filled the two empty bins with my test kit materials.

The SLP let me steal some of her magnetic letters, but didn't have enough letters for "psych*ologist"

The view from my desk

Inside my desk drawer

I have enough pens/pencils/markers to last me my entire career

I heart Sharpies

My shelf filled with all my books and binders

Hope you enjoyed my office tour! Life is crazy the next two weeks, bear with me while I am MIA.

  2. See, I don't think I would be cut out to be a teacher. My first thought was that I would leave the room and some rambunctious child would take the "logist" off the board and leave "psycho" haha! Thank you for being a teacher :)

  13. Your office looks fantastic! And you have so many fun activities and stuff. My heart started fluttering in my chest when I saw your big basket of Sharpies...they are my absolute favorite, EVER. The extra-fine markers. I am totally in love with their new non-bleeding pens, though...I just wish they came in a pretty rainbow of colors! :)

    Great job with the office!! :)

  14. You are so lucky to have a desk- a lot of my teaching friends back home aren't so lucky to get their own desks and classrooms!

    Congrats on the new school year!

  17. I have to say, you're very organized! And your office is nice and big (even if you have to share!) I'm literally in a closet at one of my schools--I only have room for a child sized desk for my computer and a teeny table for testing. Groups? Forget about it--I can maybe fit two kids max in that space
