Open House

The LHES Open House was a success!  I loved every parent and student I got to meet this evening, and I believe it went quite smoothly.  I must say, however, after this long week of meetings, and frantically trying to set up my classroom, I am ready for Tuesday!  I am going to try my hardest to stay updated with my blog, but I make no promises as this is my first year of teaching.  Amidst the struggle, stress, frustration (and hopefully some smiles), I will do my best to keep you updated on my progress as the year passes.  Below are the most recent pictures of my classroom (which I am very proud of, if I do say so myself):
The view from my door.
My class library, which still needs some work (as noted by the "Under Construction" sign). 
I'm waiting on my class library and book baskets.

...And We're Back!

I am happy to report that I've had a very relaxing summer, and I am now ready to embark on my first year as a teacher!  I will be teaching second grade at Laurel Hill Elementary (GO LIONS!), and I could not be happier with my placement and the wonderful staff I will be working with.  I am both excited and very overwhelmed by all the information I have been receiving during this past week at "Great Beginnings," but I am eager to set up my classroom and welcome my students at Open House.  Below are a couple pictures of what my classroom looks like, and I will be posting new pictures once it's all decorated and ready for the first day!
