Inside My Classroom

Hello and welcome to my classroom! If you are a regular reader of A Light In The Darkness you will know that I dream of becoming a teacher in my own school one day. Well, I am well on my way to achieving that. Today I am going to share a load of photos from the class that I teach. To meet my students, find out more about my views on education and ask any questions you may have, clickΒ here.

Okay, so these photos have been taken over the past two lessons. Let’s go!

The classroom from the outside. We call it The Lodge.

Welcome! Come on in…

This photo gives you a good idea of what the actual classroom looks like. There’s lots of space and light and I’ve tried to make it as classroom-y and welcoming as possible. Here we have Jessie and Evan writing and Irys and Joey doing some art.

We made leaf bunting during one of the lessons and I love how it looks like the leaves are suspended in midair. The autumn colours really shine in the light too.

As you can see in this photo, the school is buzzing with activity. Everyone is painting masterpieces inspired by the weather. I love it when everyone’s concentrating, enjoying and immersing themselves in their work. It’s a beautiful moment.

This is (left to right) Emma, Libby and Jessie researching and preparing to film their very own weather forecast. I love hearing all their ideas and watching then evolve into something amazing.

Jessie deep in thought….

Irys, my sister, scribbling away!

Evan, my brother, writing.

More leaf bunting (’cause I love it SO much)

Some of the finished weather masterpieces, skyscapes and paintings.

Our amazing mini library. Asdfghjkl!!!!

The kitchen. I hope to do some cooking and baking in future lessons as they are valuable and fun life-skills.

I put all their work up on display boards for people to see and admire and to remind my students what they’re capable of. They can be so creative and produce such colourful, beautiful, amazing pieces of art and writing.

A few more pieces laid out on the floor.

You guessed it, MORE leaf bunting!

Finally, meet the teacher!

Erm…hi guys!?

Okay, so I hope you enjoyed this sneak peek inside my classroom? What photo was your favourite? Do you fancy coming to my school? What are your lessons like? What are your dreams for the future and what are you doing to work towards them?

  1. Love how dedicated you are to becoming a teacher one day and all you are doing to work towards your dreams! By the looks of things you have created a very welcoming environment for your class and you are and will be an amazing teacher one day! You are a very inspiring person! I can remember that beautiful feeling of realizing everyone around is in the middle of their work and they are enjoying it when I was in school. My dreams for the future are always changing at the moment πŸ˜‚ but I would like to think it would involve blogging, writing, traveling to learn new things and always being surrounded by friends and family πŸ’•

    • Thank you so so so much, Elsie! I know, isn’t it such a beautiful moment? I love it when you realise that everyone is enjoying something that you, as a teacher, created. Our dreams for the future sound very similar actually, except that I would add teaching to that list. Thanks for commenting, you’re an inspiring person too.
