Having a mid-August birthday used to mean that I never was in school for my birthday. I never brought in cupcakes and never got to wear the birthday crown. This year though, that changes. This year, the first day of school for students falls on my birthday. I’m still debating bringing in cupcakes. I usually take any excuse to eat sweets, but I don’t want to set the precedent of giving my students cupcakes on day one. Can’t be too nice too soon.
But we all know that there’s a lot that goes into our classrooms before the first day of school. So our next few posts here are going to focus on classroom decor. You’ll get a taste of my end of the spectrum as an OCD elementary over-decorator, and a look at Jessica’s end as the eclectic, everything is here for a purpose, practical- high school decorator.
