New Year, New Room, New Team etc...

Hello Everyone!
Phew! Friday night, 10:00 P.M. I think I am finally ready for my new firsties. I had better be! They are coming on Monday!! 
 I was thrilled to meet them all last night at our "Meet the Teacher Night." I am so excited to work with them!  I took a few pics of our new space to share with you. I hope the kids will love it and feel comfortable! We've got a ton of learning to do and many hours to spend together, so it better be a space we all love.
My classroom has a western vibe as you can see, but our hallway is all bubblegum.  Enjoy!
Come On In, Y'all!
Books are stored in boxes with mini chalkboard labels
