OLD vs. NEW

This was my classroom last year when I started school in the Fall.

Old Floors, dirty walls, no air conditioning, radiator heat (too hot in winter!), and oh did i mention the mice!




This is my room this year entering the new school season. Our school built a 9.9 million dollar school!  They were able to raise 7.9 million dollars of that!   Everything is new and CLEAN!
I have my own cabinets (that lock) and counter space!
This is the hallway with our gorgeous lockers!
I have a floor to ceiling window: it let's so much light in! I love it!
A nice large whiteboard.

I am so thankful that the Lord has provided us with a new school building.  It will be so nice to start the school year out on a NEW foot:)

I have inservice meetings all this week and then we start with the kiddos on Monday!  Please pray for a good school year.

It looks wonderful! I didn't realize your school was in such poor condition last year. Wow! Isn't a new school year so exciting? I just love the fresh start of a near year. Adam started in VB this week with new teacher training. I'll go back to my school next week for a week of setting up my room & a few meetings. We start on Sept. 2. Good luck!! I wish you a great year!

I always enjoy seeing pictures like this, b/c it lets me see into your life a little bit more. Maybe someday, I'll get to poke my head in while your teaching!

Wow! What a difference! That would be so nice to have new facilities to use. PTL for His graciousness towards your school. Let me know how it goes. I'll be praying for you next week!

Love you!

Logan - Elementary schools do not do semesters - we do quarters, which is basically by season - so whatever :)
