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!


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?


  1. love it, especially "the what happens here, stays here" door mat, barack's poster, MLK quote and the presidential chair! makes me want to go visit my high school counselor, who i loved by the way!

  2. Thanks Inez!!!

    @inHERshoes - thank you so much!!!

  3. Super Cute! Especially the door mat...I din't know you were a guidance counselor! I am currently going to school for the same thing :-)

  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 :)

    @Ashley - Sorry about the comment :( but I would love to do your interview and I'M HONORED!!!! THANKS FOR FOLLOWING!

    Thanks Toya - making the pics bigger as we speak. Let me know if they are too big - I wasn't sure how it would look.

  7. Awww! How sweet! I'm glad your students love it!

  8. Awwww... sooo inviting!!!! I knew you were in the school system but NOT for 12th Graders... I know that has to be WORK!!!! I pat you on the back for that!!!!

  9. Thanks Jameil!!!

    @LA Lynn - thank you so much. It has its perks. I get to see them really grow up.
