Tabula Rasa: Before Pictures of My School Counseling Office

Yesterday I was able to see my new office for the first time.

This is what the office looked like when I first walked in. 

A blank slate.

I rearranged the furniture to give it a more open feel.

I put my desk in the corner so that I could easily roll my chair around the room. I also like that it does not create a barrier between me and students and whoever else decides to come to my office.

I also arranged all of the chairs at the small table.  This table will be perfect for small groups and individual meetings with students.

There is also a large suite area outside. There is a conference room where I could hold group counseling sessions and a few other locations in the school where I could host larger programs.

Before seeing my office I had a color scheme in mind. Now I am not so sure what I want to do. Sometimes you just need to see the space before coming up with any ideas.

My new office reminds me a lot of this previous office of mine. I want to give this space a fresh look using things I already have.

Today I am going to take in a bunch of my stuff. Once I get things out of the box I think it will add a lot of color to the space.

I can't wait to share my progress with you!

Don't forget you can upload pictures or videos of your school counseling office to Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, and Vine using the hashtag #scoffice so other school counselors can search your pictures!
