I am so excited!! I will be the kindergarten teacher at Augustus Tolton Catholic Academy starting next month. I was offered a contract on Saturday, June 20th, and I have signed my contract. I don't have a copy yet since Father Matt needed to sign it also.
I got to see my room when I went back to sign my contract. Here are some pictures:
Bulletin Board across one wall. (Summer School was going on in my room.)
Door on the right. Open cubbies for student jackets and bookbags along this wall.
My chalk board along this wall with a door on the right and a door on the left.
The last wall of my rectangular room has windows with storage underneath. No carpeting.
I have a few ideas for where I will put the daily calendar, numbers 1 - 20, the alphabet (or should I say many alphabet charts), and my library. I am going through my books at home to get just the right books for kindergarten and trying to level them. I have one large area rug but I hope to get another one. I want this room to be welcoming and a great place for learning!
Tolton Academy will be a STREAM school -- Science, Technology, Religion, Engineering, Art, Math. Science kits have been ordered and I cannot wait to get started!
As soon as I get part of my room decorated (August 17th ????) I will be posting more pictures.
Looking forward to meeting my Super Kinders on August 24th -- the first day of school!
