    This is my first year teaching, so I've been so excited to see my first classroom ever! I am taking over for a woman who just retired. She left me SOOOOO much stuff in the classroom. I'm very thankful for that. Now I just have to add some finishing touches to make it more me. I want it to be comfortable, and not just another stuffy classroom. I'm super excited, and just wanted to share. :lol:

    Hooray! Hopefully you are able to use much of what was left for you. Enjoy getting it ready for your students.

    Congrats! It's awesome that the retiring teacher left you stuff! It's less you have to spend out of your own pocket, which is hard to do being a first year teacher! Good luck!

    I plan on using a ton of stuff she left. Basically, the classroom is all set up. I moved the desks to another way that I wanted them though. I just want to get a few things to make it a little my style. I am going to send her a nice thank you note. :)

    I am so insanely jealous of you! Everyone at my school I think is on vacation since I can't get in touch with anyone! I'm hoping next week they'll be back.

    That's awesome that the previous teacher left you a ton of stuff!

    There's actually more stuff than I need in there! Clearly she had a ton of stuff because she taught for a long time. I'll probably have to get rid of a few things.

    Congrats its an awesome feeling when the previous teacher leaves you a ton of stuff. That was my scenerio last year and i was extremely thankful. Enjoy your first year and setting up! It flies by!

    She even returned to the school once a week and worked with some of my students in reading. It was great!

    Seeing your first classroom for the first time is one of the most special things about being a teacher. The next will be your first group of kids....and then seeing those kids leave at the end of the year!!!!

    Congrats of your first! There are lots of firsts to come!!!!

    Yes! I was so excited to have a Promethean. I'm an excellent flip chart maker! I really love the technology and that my students will have laptops.

    Awesome! I really, really want to get into my classroom but it probably won't happen for another week and a half.

    My team lead said that a retired teacher left a whole bunch of stuff in a closet, so hopefully there will be some good stuff inside!
