So, yesterday I got to meet with my principal to discuss my upcoming year!
In our meeting I got to have a few questions answered (I get to start in my classroom on December 10th officially), got to meet a good portion of the staff I'll be working with, and got a tour of the campus.
Let me just say, when I walked into what will now be MY CLASSROOM, It is HUGE!
I seriously cannot wait to get in there and start making it my own.
My classroom currently has a Long Term Substitute that has been proving my students with their special education services.
That being said, a substitute isn't likely to create anchor charts and decorate the room when it's not a place she will be staying in permanently. So the wall are BARE. This can be condusive to learning for some students in special education, but I'm really hoping my students are down for some decor...because bare, white, brick walls just isn't doing it for me!
Now they are super excited for me to be coming in so the students have more stability with their teacher! I met the sub and she seems fabulous, but she and I have a ton to catch up on in the next few weeks (she already knows these students and I have a ton to catch up on)!
In the coming weeks, hopefully prior to Winter Break, I'll have an opportunity to decorate and upload some pictures of the fabulousness.
Remember, this is Mrs. D's Diamond...I'm finding my diamonds in the rough...so that will be my overall theme and it's going to ROCK!!! :)
