How to Decorate a High School Classroom | eHow Ideas: Decorate teacher's desk with personal items. Use modern media references. White board for quotes, let students submit ideas. Have the kids do projects/paint pictures/write poetry. Have a hero's corner. A section dedicated to artwork. (Famous artists?) A comedy corner (puns? comic strips?) Rearrange the student desks to keep them on their toes (suggestion = Wednesday)
Teachers desks have a habit of becoming cluttered messes. My aim is to have an organised desk that models my expectations for the students desks. Lets hope I live up to my aim and not fall into cluttered mayhem due to the busyness of teaching.
