James' mom is a 1st grade teacher in the St. Charles school district. She is highly praised not only for her teaching skills, but also for her creative classrooms. I recently dropped in on her at school while she was redoing her classroom for this upcoming year. Besides decorating her own room, she did another teacher's room as well. I truly wished I had been lucky enough to have her as a teacher. She is so talented that I just couldn't wait to blog about her!
Her room drips with charm and love for what she does. She says she still is doing more to her room when I came in, but I think she could walk away now and still be incredibly proud of what she gives to her students.
Even the marker boards are adorable
