His name is Jeff. He is a teacher too. And...did I mention that he is incredibly handy?
A few years ago, I fell in love with an easel that I saw in the Lakeshore catalog. Before I could save enough money to buy it, voila! I had an even better one... on wheels, with storage underneath and inside!
|This is my magnetic white board easel.|
|back view - a place to display pocket charts and peg board in case I want to hang other things|
|This is the storage space on the inside - excuse the mess.|
|my paper storage shelf - with my name/school name carved into the top|
|a bookshelf for my leveled sets to use during small group reading instruction|
He made the paper storage shelf after seeing my leaning pile of paper for the kids to use. When I moved to 1st grade from kindergarten, I really wanted a shelf for my leveled sets. So, Jeff measured my biggest leveled book and my smallest leveled book and made a shelf perfectly suited to be the home for my leveled readers.
These are just a few of the things he has made for my classroom. He also makes lots of things for our own kids. He even made this American Girl doll bed for a former student of mine who is undergoing chemotherapy.
Honestly, I just love him!

Thank you, Jeff! Cause I know he's probably a secret follower. Ha!
