Throwback Thursday!

Throwback to one of the years I taught 4th grade, to my favorite wall and bulletin board of that year–maybe ever.

This experience was everything; I loved everything about it.

Pictured below are final projects in one of the cosmetology classes–what do you think?

I visited my friend’s classroom and she had this posted. Brilliant right? Nothing like a clear measure of needed, desired, or expected volume in the classroom.
