Photos of My Classrooms

What’s Here

Welcome to my collection of third grade classroom photos!  I’ve taught in a lot of different schools, and I’ve got photos of a classroom from each year beginning in 2003 (when I first got a digital camera and started this website) through 2009 (when I left the classroom to become an instructional coach and educational consultant.) So, take a look around, and enjoy my classroom pictures!

The school is brand new and my classroom is large but doesn’t have windows. Are there any suggestions for setting up a ‘window less classroom’?

Hi, Susannah! My 2005 classroom didn’t have windows, so I feel your pain! (You can view what I did with it here: http://thecornerstoneforteachers.com/TR/tour2005.pdf)

Also, check out Mandy Gregory’s website–she is a kindred soul and has great resources including, believe it or not, a page called Trailer Organization! LOL! http://mandygregory.com/Trailer%20Organization.htm

Hi ! I am a French teatcher and I am currently reading your book The Cornerstone. I am was really happy to finaly find some pragmatic help with your book since we don’t have such information for teatchers in France.
Your way of teatching is beeing known in France thanks to canadian and french bloggers whose blogs are connected : http://universdemaclasse.blogspot.com/2011/10/le-rang.html for example is the source of the “french enlightment” about overseas methods on teatchers blogs.
Thank you so much for your work ! It is the first time I can practice a tip found in a book and see the effects immediatly in my classroom.
I see on the photos that you use video- and retroprojectors. Do you use both tools ? Do you prefer one ? I would like to buy one and would be happy to know your advice.
Is there any website where we can find motivationnal quotes for classrooms ? We do not use reinforcement techniques in France but punishment for misbehaviour and we clearly see the limits of this teatcher influence.

Hi, Diane! I really enjoyed reading the (poorly translated) version of your blog post! Very cool! I’m so glad you shared that. I appreciate your kind words.

For motivational quotes, I find that http://www.pinterest.com has some great stuff! My page is here: http://pinterest.com/angela_watson/ and I have a whole board of motivational quotes.

As far as technology tools, I really like the LCD projector and document camera. I bought a very inexpensive document camera on eBay and my school provided the LCD projector. These totally transformed the way I teach!

Please stay in touch!

Hi….I am just about to make the switch to tables instead of desks in my junior high reading classroom. I have ordered carrels to use when testing or doing individual assignments. I have been trying to think of a great storage method for them that might attach to each table. Can you think of a way to hold about 8 carrels on each table?Thanks!!!

Hi, there! Tell me exactly what you’re trying to do…do you need a way to attach the 8 carrels to each other on the table?

No…just wanting a good way to store 8 Carrells at each table so students won’t have to get up and go to back of room to get them each time needed. Like maybe attached to end of table somehow??? Thanks so much for responding!!!

Oh, I see. They are collapsable carrells, I assume? Maybe a large plastic tub at the end of each table? The carrells are a great idea, by the way–I’d love to see pics of how this works for you!
