My Office!

After seeing several posts by other school counselor bloggers sharing their office spaces, I've decided to share mine as well. I really love how my office has turned out this year (thanks to Pinterest for several ideas!) and have received a lot of positive feedback from both students and staff. The best compliment is when someone tells me they'd like to curl up in one of my chairs and take a nap! Seems like I've achieved the comfortable, welcoming environment I was striving for!

I am very lucky to have a nice sized office that allows for small group space, individual student space and my computer/desk/storage space that is separate from my "kid zones".

Here are some pictures of my office!
