The Closet Organizer

The Closet Organizer Last month, Marie Kondo’s show hit Netflix and it seemed like everyone needed to find there way to tidying up their lives. I renovated the laundry over the last year - removing and installing new flooring, re-painting the walls, constructing new cabinets, etc. The last ticket to punch was to design and install a closet organizer. I began by figuring out what I would store in the closet, then designing a shelving system that would work. [ 82 more words ]

I don't always teach #programming, but when I do, the students outshine the teacher.

Gosh, that makes me so proud to say that. I love being a teacher.

#classroomtables got new #labels. Students can choose their adventure during stations, can be grouped by a name or task. Great way to bring personality into the classrrom. Now to rename my room itself. Maybe thinking #STEMstudio.

This Week in the Shop: The Library Book Nook

This Week in the Shop, I build a library book nook for my school. My school librarian came to me with her coffee bar theme for a renovated library and she wanted a circular book nook to take advantage of a certain space in the library. This book nook had to incorporate a column and reclaimed table top, be made under budget (roughly $500), have a professional look, design and materials. [ 432 more words ]
