As you probably know by now, next year I will be the librarian at my school. I have been working in the library a lot. I am in the middle of rearranging the picture books (from AR level to author's last name), laying out a new floorplan, and sorting and organizing lots of stuff.
Here are some before pictures-

As you can see- I have some work to do. The walls will be painted and new carpet will be put down sometime in July. It's going to be a race to the finish to have it ready by August 8th. Keep me in your prayers!
I am also working as a Common Core Coach. I was hired by the state to train other 1st grade teachers in the ELA Common Core Standards. I am currently sitting in my hotel room in Chattanooga writing this- my final week of prepration is this week. Then, I will spend 3 weeks in July traveling around and training teachers. I walked around the downtown area this afternoon and absolutely fell in love with the city. It's just adorable. See if you agree-
|Bicycles to rent!|
|A cute little pizza place!|
|A cool sculpture|
It's just a lovely downtown area. It has a warehouse district feel to it. So cute. If you get a chance, you should definitely visit!
