The Other Classroom...Panther Style

I made this with a transparency sheet ran through the printer.

CMC classroom Panther Style!!!Here we have pictures of past to present Panthers...Mrs. Dellis is on this wall, she taught many in this town, first grade, including me! We've tried to include pictures of those that teach here now, so the kids could see them back in the day! If anyone has copies they would like to post on the wall, please send them to me!

Jacob's old shoes, Beverly's wool cheerleader "M" from the 60's, and my knit track suit, circa 1974 (Don't think spandex had been invented!)

Even our stockings have Panther Paws!!!

The schedule background is wall paper, picked up for cheap, at a thrift store;Loved using it, because the lines made it soo easy to get it straight.

Bev used a Cricut to make CMC letters. Those things are amazing. Every nook and cranny is filled with Panther Pride!!!

When we move around a couple of years ago... We inherited this Panther!!! Newspaper clipping are added all through the year, then put in a scrap book to make room for next year's clippings. The framed pictures on either side is art work the students did.

FAMILY Pictures... The kids enjoy seeing them and so do I.

Hurdle above the door was bought at a garage sale for fifty cents!!!

I love old stuff and use this above my desk for a message board. Love the chippy green and white paint!!!

I picked this briefcase up at Goodwill, intending to take it apart to make something else, but decided it was in to good of shape, so now it is my desk organizer. Genuine top quality cowhide, what every Texas lady needs!!!

Great place to quickly stash confidential files I'm working on when a student comes in for help.

I love small details, such as these covered buttons, my daughter, Jodi made with ribbon we've used throughout the room.

My desk with shutter hard at work!

Antique sign-in desk for this room. Yes, I know we need to do some hemming. It was a quick fix to hide some REAL junk!!! Well, the tour is over; hope you enjoyed it. Go to this post if you want to see our other classroom. Go Panthers!!!

I especially love the shutter! I love the desk! I really really like what you did with the transparency. My mind is racing as to how I can use that idea. Truth is I love it all!! Good job of putting it all together.

Thank you for visiting junkblossoms. Hope you'll visit often. Pat

Oh that shutter is wonderful! Have we absolutely lost our minds that the more chippy something is the better it gets?!? The two sided / outside frame is very unusual and cool!

That shutter is perfect; perfect chippiness, perfect shade of green and perfect little shape on the top. I love this.

Love this idea! I have stumbled across a smaller, reclaimed shutter and want to do something very similar. Thanks for the idea!
