i have my own classroom. in the days of art on a cart, i don't have much to complain about. but the space is small. very small. at least i have a max class size of 18, and usually more like 12-15. then there's the sinks. there's only two. they're high, even for me. i had a step built, but i still need to help the PreK and some of the K kids. and the tables, they were too tall. i had 10 cm cut off of every leg. when i first arrived, there was no paper cutter. luckily you can buy them locally. and when i first arrived, the room was pale yellow and dingy grey/green. now it's a cheery light blue with cork walls!
i've adopted the a six color rainbow for my classroom, with grades assigned to different colors. with all the custom posters and kid-art on the walls, i love the art space now, even if naea says i should only have 8 kids in this size room, and have a separate art office/storage room.
now for a little tour around my room...
