Introducing Counselor Richards

Hey Everyone - Don't forget to enter my "100th Post Giveaway" - it closes Wednesday!!!


In the meantime - here are some pics of my newly decorated office.  I'm the 12th grade counselor and I was going for the "Dorm Room Look."  In my opinion - I SUCCEEDED because my students LOVE IT!!!

Let me know what you think :)

This is the doormat when you enter my office.  I thought it was a cute way to play on the fact I am a guidance counselor.
The view you see from the door - love my presidential chair :)

Wall Pops 



Everyone should have flowers on their desk - I spray them with febreeze :)

This quote tells me everything I do is worth it!

Inspiration

Surrounded by pics of fam and friends.  The plaque says "Everyone brings joy to this office - some when they enter and some when they leave"  Last present my mother bought for me.

These mini round rugs match my Wall Pops and don't require me to vacuum :)
Counselor to the Future Stars - where are you headed??

Great saying!


Can't promote higher education without displaying my degrees :)
Don't talk about it - Be about it!

Rest if you must - but don't quit!

Too Cute!

My Fiancee and I <3

Also I don't use the overhead lighting.  I bought in two lamps which I love.  I have turned a plain, white cinderblock office with NO window into a graduating seniors freshman dorm.  I love it - what do you think?

  4. #$R&^ I'm so mad! I had left a long comment & it didn't go through. Ugh let me think back. Okay..lol. I didn't know you were a HS counselor. That was something I was passionate about, but I didn't want to do the schooling for it. I think your dorm room idea was a great idea, especially for the 12th graders preparing for college.

    I would love to do a mini interview for my mentoring program website: http://mentoringyounggirls.weebly.com/index.html

    Ps. I am now following your blog :)
