Finally, as many of you have requested I have posted pictures of my new fourth grade classroom. During my first three years of teaching I taught fifth grade. So this year I requested to be moved down. My request was granted although, I was only moved one grade down and one classroom over. I spent all summer working to move furniture, setup my room, and decorating a new classroom. As many of you that know me well understand I have a very positive attitude and cheerful personality. I consider teaching a true passion. I teach in a very low socioeconomic school so most children have very challenging home lives. I try to welcome every student with a smile and energetic greeting to my classroom. Many students actually have nicknamed me "Miss Smiley." To portray a happy environment I have made my classroom theme each year smiley faces. My collection is rapidly growing, but my heart melts each time a child walks through my classroom door and that overwhelming smile comes over their face as they look around.
- Hope you enjoy the snapshots of my new classroom.
