I Can...Be Organized!

Yay! It's summer!

I love summer because not only do I get to do whatever I want to my kids want to do for a couple of months, I also look forward to August (or September) when we, as teachers, are given a fresh, new start!

My summers are spent with my own kiddos, but during their nap time, I catch up on my t.v. shows (Suits and Big Bang Theory!) and also think about how the new school year will go. Yes, I can't stop thinking about school. I'm crazy.

I enjoy creating new things and revamping my classroom each summer so I can make my life easier for the upcoming school year. I like my classroom to be clean, organized, matching, and most things to be accessible and easy for my little friends and I to use. Sometimes I’m at school longer than I’m at my own home, so I definitely need to feel comfortable and feel like it is my sanctuary!

The posts on this page will feature organization tips that I have incorporated into my classroom and you're welcome to see how I do things in class. I wish that when I was a new teacher 7 years ago, someone helped me figure out the importance of keeping everything in order. I hope I can help you out too!

Please check back here to see pictures of how I'm arranging my new classroom, unit files, my classroom library, etc.!

Thanks for visiting,


  1. Hi Joelle, I'm so glad you stopped by my blog. I would love to be a follower. You need to install that great little "Follow this Blog" gadget in your sidebar. I've been teaching for 7 years as well and am always trying to get just a bit more organized each year!


    1. Hi Maria! Thank you for the kind words and THANK YOU for being my very first comment! :) I'm a little shy about old and new friends following my blog, since I've never made one before and there are lots to learn! But since I know you will, I'll do it! ;) Take care!
