Welcome to my classroom

Welcome!  I took these photos with my iPhone last August as I was setting up my classroom for the beginning of the school year.  These are just a few that I wanted to post to get my new math teaching blog started.  I have been so inspired this summer by all the primary blogs I have found while searching out math and reading activities to do with my 5 yo son to prepare him for starting kindergarten this year.

Last year I changed up my door decor and really ended up loving it.    I got lots of compliments on my new design.

A view to left of the door.  I want people to feel welcome when entering my room  and I think my door decor does the trick!

My daily assignment board for the first day of school last year.    The green was for my two accelerated classes and the blue was for my two regular math classes.  The numbers were for a get acquainted activity I do on the first day.
This is where I keep all the papers that go into student binders organized.  I am very serious about my classroom organization.

The goal of this blog is to share ideas with other teachers and hopefully network with other dedicated and creative middle school math teachers.  There are so many primary teaching blogs that are phenomenal and perhaps I can find my way to some equally amazing blogs that focus on middle school math~ 


  1. I am so glad I found your blog! I am going to be teaching 6th grade math after being a high school teacher for 6 years. I have had a hard time finding blogs for middle school or math. I love blogging, so I may start up a teaching blog as well. Keep up the great ideas!

  2. I love that I found your blog! I will be student teaching 8th grade math this fall. I made a career change after 10 plus years in the finance world to become a teacher and I am very excited about it! I also am super nervous too! :)

    Love reading about your ideas!

  3. I am loving your blog. This year I'm moving from teaching 6th grade in an elementary school to teaching math in the middle school. I'm so excited, I can't even stand it. I like A LOT of color, and I am inspired stumbling across your blog. I got the keys to my new classroom today, and it is absolutely hideous. I'm going to need color to breathe some life into it.

  4. Love a lot of your stuff. What is the brand name of your paper organizer shelves? I can't seem to find the one I want and yours looks close!
