Although most people think that teachers only sleep, watch TV, and sit by the pool during their summer, teachers know the truth. We are constantly trying to become better teachers. Whether teachers are reading books, scanning blogs, writing lesson plans, or searching Pinterest for new ideas on decorating and organizing the classroom, there is never a dull moment.
I know that one of my favorite things to do in the summer is to look for new ways to decorate for next year. I’ve always had an owl theme, but I’ve consistently added to my classroom with new nifty ideas I’ve found on Pinterest.
This blog post outline some fun organizing and decorating pins I have found!
