Finding the Perfect Sharpener

I have long searched for a solid pencil sharpener that will work for middle school students. My experience has been that electric pencil sharpeners, while fast, tend to be loud and within about a year or two die.

Pinspiration #4: Corkboard Project!

Before school started, I requested the help of my dear friend Marisha for classroom decorating ideas. She is far better at pulling together a space, and graciously sent me the following pin (see Pinspiration photo, right). I loved the idea of a corkboard in my room! She graciously took me shopping to buy the materials and then set me to work assembling.
