Why is that SLP smiling???

A smile is the light in your window that tells others that there is a carrying sharing person inside. ~ Denis Waitley


I have a new room this year and it has a WINDOW! In the 36 years as an SLP I have worked in many different spaces, hallways, cubby holes, etc. But of all these spaces only 3 times have I ever had a window and the last time was about 20 years ago. This year I have a glorious window that looks out onto the courtyard in the middle of our school.  Yes that is a big reason to smile.


Here is a walk through my new space. Please come on in!image

The left wall and my table. My room is in our Media Center.


The back wall – with a WINDOW!

The right wall-


Back to the entrance and my desk-

The back of my door-


AND  I have more storage right outside of my door. The cabinets even create a cozy hallway right that I could use as another therapy space.

AND I have even more storage a few steps away! I store my theme units, art supplies and other items that I use less often. This is how they looked before I rearranged everything.


So the next adventure is scheduling but I will be doing it with a smile as I sit by my window.

Stay tuned for some twists on how I plan to items on my walls and a fun way I’m going to cover the windows by my desk.

    Wow! Congrats, Cindy! You’d better hang on to that one! It looks amazing! I graduated in 1976 from UGA. How about you?


    • Cindy said,

      Thanks Lucy! I hope to stay here and hold on tight.
      I graduated with my B.S. in 1977 and back the in MN you could be an SLP without your M.S. in the schools. I went back and received my Masters in 1985.

  5. You have thought of everything , even down to the fairy door. Children will be so excited to see you with a room like this. Well done .
