Feathering My New Nest
This has been my first week at my new job. I’m working at a private, non-profit agency with birth-5 caseload. So far, I really like it. My first two days were orientation. Those hard plastic chairs were painful! I was glad to get a chance to be CPR/First Aid certified, though. I’ve always wanted to do that, but just never have gone through with it.
Wednesday was my first day in my office. I hauled all of my therapy stuff in from the car and wondered how in the world I would ever be able to find space for everything! Here’s the “before” picture:
By lunchtime, I had the boxes unpacked and spent the afternoon touring the campus with my supervisor and getting a little . I’m sure glad they didn’t test me on everyone’s names!
This morning, I had a little more orientation on paperwork. (My brain is boggled!) This afternoon, I put the finishing touches on my office and spent some time looking at information on my kiddos. Since I can’t tell you about any of that, here’s a look at the “after” pictures of the office.
Looking in from the door…
I can’t help but “feather my nest”! If I’m supposed to spend my days in this space, I want it to be inviting and comfortable.
Language Leo moved too!
I think it turned out great. I hope they don’t ask me to move to a different room any time soon! I will have to work a little bit in a different room that’s in another building. I’m definitely not going to decorate it much.
I’m supposed to spend next week reviewing files and meeting my kids. I’d like to do some observation in the classrooms as well. My goal is to start “real” (read: billable) therapy the week of the 20th. I’ll keep y’all updated & I just might have some therapy plans to share!
