As mentioned in one of my last “currently” posts, I’m starting off this school year as a teacher and for the last couple of months, I’ve been transitioning out of my current position and prepping for the new year. Now that I’m officially in the swing of teaching and the school bells have rung, I’m sharing with you our learning space.
Over the past few years, I’ve gotten the chance to know a lot of you through this blog and it’s been awesome sharing different life changes with you. Therefore, I thought it would be a perfect opportunity to share with you some shots of my classroom.
Now, my classroom isn’t the most conventional school room because our school isn’t your traditional-looking school.
Our school actually used to be homes, but our founders transformed the spaces into a school to be able to provide lower income families in our neighborhood with quality, private school they could afford in a familiar setting. We’re also on a tight budget every year because our school provides up to 90% of our students’ tuitions so that families can afford to send their children there, regardless of their financial ability. That means a large chunk of our budgets goes to paying for our students to attend. It’s one of the many things I love about the mission and heart of this school.
With that in mind, our classrooms aren’t necessarily the trendiest to most. We don’t have new floors and primary colors splashed all over our walls. Our classrooms actually used to be bedrooms, living rooms, and other spaces many years ago. It’s one of the really cool, unique, and homey things about our school that give it it’s character.
