Picture a 100 year old building with tons of little odd shaped rooms everywhere. One of those odd shaped rooms happened to be a 400 sq foot storage closet right next to my classroom. I had looked at this room numerous times and visioned a space for students. Last school year, I shared my vision with my principal. He thought it was a great idea and gave me the go ahead to try and make it happen.
During this past summer, I along with the help of some amazing parents, began to convert this space into our school’s new Makerspace.
First step CLEANING! We spent about three days cleaning out this room.
