I've decided that decorating a classroom is just about one of the funnest things in existence. They're paying me for this? My inner interior decorator (say that three times fast—"inner interior decorator, inner intreriro dec...") is on the verge of unbridled giddiness.
And as a teacher, I now have access to all sorts of super cool artsy-craftsy implements. My favorite? The die cutter, which lets me cut out all sorts of crisp nifty letters and other wingdings. Also, the massive paper cutter is pretty frakkin' cool.
