Back to School... Kind of!

Hi All!

It's been awhile since I last posted.  Where does the time go?!

My classroom has had its yearly summer "bath" the other week, so it has been ready for me to go in and do my thing!  Now, what teacher in their right mind would want to go into their classroom to set it up when they still have a month and a half of summer break?  Well, that's me! LOL

Before you think of me as a nerd, I have a good excuse!  I leave soon for a trip to Mexico with my boyfriend, and when I get back, I leave for a cruise to Alaska!  By the time I get back from all these trips, it will be back to school time, and I didn't want to be stressed to get the room done!

Anyhow, I'm blogging because every year I want to change up the layout of my room somehow. I've been in it for 11 school years, so it's nice to make changes!  I had no set plan going into my room the other day BUT then I saw it!  What is it?  A picture.  A picture from where?  A picture from Pinterest, of course!  As I was pinning some of my TpT products I came upon this picture of two filing cabinets put together to be used as a magnetic board.  Why have I never thought of that?  How awesome is that?  The big ugly filing cabinets have been put to use!  Below is not the picture I saw on Pinterest; it's my filing cabinets!

This is of course a work in progress!  The filing cabinets picture that I saw on Pinterest had a cute border around it.  I'm not sure I have enough room for that, but it's a possibility, of course!  When I get my classroom completely set up, I plan to post a few pics.  I love to see pictures of other classrooms, so I'd love to share mine!

If you're still on summer break- enjoy!  If you're not, I hope your year has began with a great start!

Thanks for stopping by!  Until next time...


  1. That's a great use of space. What a good idea.

  2. I love that you were in getting your room ready this early. Our rooms were cleaned first this year, so I actually started unpacking and decorating on June 25th. Since, I moved to a new room, I need every minute I can get. :)
