School Counseling Office

In honor of all of my fellow School Counselor bloggers, I am sharing pictures of my office.  I am so blessed to have such a huge space! 

I have a love/hate relationship with my conference table.  It sometimes gets used for meetings, but I also use it for my 5th grade groups.

My kid friendly area

If you look carefully at my small round table, you can see my flower pencils...I just filled a flower pot with dried beans to help them stand up, and used gardening tape to put the flowers on the pencils.  We use these for small groups and the kids think it's the coolest thing ever!

My desk area

Likes:  It's huge! I have my own sink; I have a huge desk with tons of storage; I'm centrally located in the school, not in the main office so kids can get to me easily. There is a clear seperation of my desk area and the area where I work with students.

Dislikes: My hospital white walls. My principal said that I could maybe paint them.  Any paint color ideas??  My tiny window is a tease.  I have 2 doors that go to other offices.  The space was intended to be a counseling suite, but with limited space, the "offices" are being used by others in the school.  Oh well! I get the huge therapy room!

  1. I am looking to paint my walls a Mindful Gray from Benjamin Moore, but you can get the BEHR brand at Home Depot and match the color!
