Today, I’d like to invite you in for a peek at my therapy room!
I’m very lucky to have a space to call my own. In my first three years, I travelled between ten different parochial schools, and had a desk in a classroom in an eleventh building, so my car was essentially my office. Since I’ve worked for my current district, however, I’ve been tucked into this former principal’s office space that is inside another classroom.
Inside is a mixture of furniture that came when I inherited the room, pieces I have rehabbed (like my desk makeover), and some pieces I have purchased over the years (like my bookcase and desk chairs).
My philosophy when it comes to decorating my space is that I spend a lot of hours here, and I want it to feel cozy and welcoming for both myself and my students! Not everyone feels the same way, and that’s totally ok – after all, it’s not the space that makes the therapy important. It’s you, friend!
Here’s the full video walkthrough:
And here’s a few up close highlights:

Hi Natalie! I have been looking for room inspiration during COVID and wondered what modifications you are making to your space this school year when you see kids face-to-face. Hope you are happy and healthy!!

Hi, Christine! I am actually seeing the majority of my students either online, via my hallway cart this year, or push into classrooms this year, with only a small handful being seen individually in my therapy room. When they come in, I will move the plastic divider from my cart to my therapy table.
