So...as a six-year-long 2nd grade teacher, I'm definitely leaving my comfort zone as I enter a middle school setting. Here's my question: Most (actually, almost all) the middle school classrooms I've been in have always had minimal decorations. No butcher paper, no border, no art work--nothing. I am so accustomed to having a colorful & inviting classroom. Will people give me weird looks if I continue to have a colorful classroom in the middle school environment? Please be honest--you won't hurt my feelings!
