Cute Classroom Inspiration–Tara Stimac, Grand Blanc, MI

  Some of you may remember, Tara, my teaching partner.  I featured pictures of her gorgeous ocean inspired classroom.  Before Tara’s room was saturated in beautiful blues and greens, she had an entirely different theme!

Some of you may remember, Tara, my teaching partner.  I featured pictures of her gorgeous ocean inspired classroom.  Before Tara’s room was saturated in beautiful blues and greens, she had an entirely different theme!

Tara and I both LOVE decorating!  We talk about it and think about it all the time.  So, when she called me one snowy January morning (I happened to be at a conference) and told me she was tearing down her entire classroom and replacing it with a new theme, I wasn’t surprised!  I have to admit, I thought she was a little crazy…who tears down their room in January?  Ummmm….Tara does!

Tara wanted to create a patriotic theme for personal reasons.  Her brother is in the Army.  She planned to create a space that served as a tribute to her brother.

The girl was on a mission.  Tara is the type of girl that once she gets an idea in her head, she runs with it!  There was no stopping her!  She stayed after school until the building closed night after night. 

This was the final result…

Tara created a flag above her windows.  Did you notice her coordinating storage boxes?

Don’t you love how she decorated the doors?  The children also created their own self portraits and Tara mounted their pictures on coordinating paper.

Tara took everything down the last week of school in preparation for her new ocean theme. 

I have asked her what her plans are for next year… she says she LOVES her ocean inspired classroom so much that she doesn’t want to take it down.  I know how much she likes to decorate, so I am betting that a change will be coming!!!

We shall see….
