So if you have been blog stalking you know that I am moving positions this year from 1st grade classroom teacher to ITRT (instructional technology resource teacher)! While being an "internet zombie" which is what my husband now calls me I found an awesome pin that linked to a keyboard inspire monogram! With my last name changing I thought this was a perfect opportunity to put it on display AND how cute is it? My new last name is Jones and it is going to be a big change for the teachers and students.
I incorporated my black and white theme by adding a strip of ribbon across the bottom! I am using yellow as my main accent color but pink is really my favorite so I used a hot pink piece of card stock as the background (left over from wedding crafts). One of the hardest parts was deciding on a font for "Mrs. Jones." I recently became obsessed with downloading fonts! I would say that I have become a font hoarder and can add it to the list of my additions!
Once I got all the pieces in place which took a lot of patience (they were like Dominoes) I started the hot glue process! I have a love hate relationship with the hot glue gun because it has the potential to be so amazing BUT once you put your piece in place you better hope it's where you want it! It looks awesome hanging outside of my new room!
One of the many *hats* I wear at school is being a lead mentor! This is something that I love doing. I am very passionate about supporting new educators! I found tons of "Survival Kits" for new teachers that I tweaked from Pinterest so make this one my own! (Alex, pretend to be surprised because I know you will be reading this)! I picked 15 different things that I found at the Dollar Store, Walmart or Target and added a little positive note or representation for each! I put all the items in a red, white and blue party bag and can't wait to give them to our newbies on our first day together! I have the Word document if you are interested in it, just leave a comment and I am happy to share.
Happy Monday Made It Friends! Thanks for checking out my blog and I hope you will become my newest follower if you are looking for technology tips throughout the year! If there is something specific you have a question about or are looking for just let me know!
