Tonight, I am so excited to link up with Ladybug's Teacher Files Organizational Linky. Kristen has got it GOING ON! She is so brilliant with organization and has some amazing tips for teachers so be sure to stop on over and give her shout after your visit with me!
I know many of my teaching friends do not have much space for storage. I am definitely BLESSED to have a newer building that provides ample storage space for the teachers. My workroom is my special little hiding place... No kids. Just me and the adult helpers usually go in there for supplies when needed. Sometime after Christmas, the workroom got a bit dicey and it was always the last thing on my list to clean up. Then, the fire marshal shows up, unannounced, and gave me a ticket. That's right folks. My name is Julie, I am a first grade teacher and I was sited by the local authorities for having too much stuff.
"But officer, sir... What is this poor teacher to do after 11 years of stock-piling resources?"
He made the smart choice and did NOT answer that rhetorical question. Grrrrrrrr.
But one thing is for sure.
It definitely needs some summer cleaning.
To give you a virtual walk through, I made a fun little video of the workroom BEFORE the organization happens.
Take a peek....if you dare!
Next week, I will link up again and share my workroom makeover PART 2 with you to share my makeover results!
