I always have to laugh when I see things like this, as I am so not interested in having an institutional room in my home. (Had to add this - check out some of the rooms that families have put together at the link below - bright, cozy fun, not so teacher's-desk-at-the-front-drones-sitting-in-little-rows. Yeah!) No, I'm not saying it's bad, or you're wrong, or that I can't be your friend if that works for you. It's just not my thing, that's all. For me, I just can't see being in a room for hours a day when I have an entire house at my disposal, know what I mean?
Here's what we have instead . . .
The Supply Closet
Not to mention workbox room.
The Girls' Locker
No combination needed.
Well, part of it, at least.
Ours never closes and no dorky hair nets required.
Dispensing required supplements: Godiva dark chocolate, dark chocolate covered espresso beans, cappuccino and the like.
Tapestry of Grace binder close at hand, schedule for the day, laptop, water, camera, etc.
The Counselor's Office
You know, the Wonderful Counselor!
The Principal's Office/Student Support Office
Parent/teacher conferences, tutoring, discipline, think tank conventions, etc.
See? No dedicated room required, just a home! :)
