My classroom!

Yea! I finally got to see my classroom! It's not even close to being done, in fact, they have pushed the start of school back 2 days. Fine with me, that much more time for me to prepare! I've been getting my classes mapped out and materials together. My mom bought me a whole library of books... thanks mom!... so I feel much better now! I think just knowing the students will have something to do if there is down time, makes me a little more comfortable! If anyone has any words of wisdom, or cool books we can read for the first week of school, feel free to fill me in! Also, I'm thinking about starting the year reading "Because of Winn Dixie" as a read aloud book. After that, I have no idea... so any suggestions??

This is the front of the school. I was a little freaked out with all the colors splashed all over the outside of the building, but now that it's coming together, it looks really cool!
A little blurry, but this is my "pod." I'm so excited to be in blue (my fave color!) That's my classroom door on the left.
This is the south facing wall. The whole wall is windows! I'm so excited how bright and cheery it is!
This is the north wall! Tons of storage and my own desk in the back!
And ME! Do I look like a teacher? I'm not so sure, but I will be the best teacher ever, even if I don't wear a denim skirt and vest!
So that's it for now! I will try to post as time goes on! I am starting school for myself the same day school starts for my students, so if you think about it, say a little prayer for me the morning of the 20th! I'm so nervous and excited, I can't believe this is really happening. It's going to be a crazy year, but very worth it in the end!
