Mrs. Joyce, an elementary teacher and friend, asked if I could give her some ideas on organizing her classroom. I had the privilege of working with her for several years. What a wonderful lady, and one of a kind teacher! So, because it’s for you Mrs. Joyce, I am happy to do this post. I had to dig a bit for some ideas. I never had a neat classroom. I tried, but just not in my blood. My former teacher assistants – Sherry, Tina, and Edna – kept my classroom in order. They would tell you the same. It’s been several years since I have seen them – miss you all.
Searching for ideas has taken quite a while. I decided to break it into sections. Part 1 features dream classrooms. Most teachers would drool over any of these beautiful spaces.
So clean and organized. Love the pennant and pom poms!
So bright and welcoming!
Everything has a place. Awesome projector!
Nice cubbies and arrangement.
Small, but organized.
The tables are adorable.
Love the atmosphere.
Teachers have their “dream classroom” in mind from day one of becoming a teacher. Sadly, that dream is altered due to limited resources and space. Teachers are resourceful by nature. But sometimes, that just isn’t enough. If you know a teacher, ask him/her if there is anything they need or want for their classroom. Maybe the lamp you don’t like or those pillows that don’t match your décor anymore. Believe me, there is a teacher somewhere that would love to have those items. Part 2 coming soon!
