Take a Peek Inside My Speech-Language Therapy Room

Today, I would like to give you a peek into my speech-language therapy room at my K-6 elementary school.  If you know me at all, you know I love decorating!  My philosophy is that I spend more waking hours in this room than I do at home during the school day, so it should be a space where I feel comfortable.  (Note:  I spent my first three years traveling between ten different schools per week in a different district, so I was very happy to have a space of my own to decorate!)

My room is in the older wing of our building, and is actually the former principal's office.  You have to walk through the Title I room to get to my room - thankfully the Title I teacher is one of my good friends at school, and we usually see a lot of the same students.

 Here's the view from the door:

On the bulletin board by my table are my student rules and my High Stakes Vocabulary Builder (Jr Edition).  On the other wall is my student goal display  - not all of my kids have completed it yet this year, but these are the ones I have had time to laminate.  (All of my bulletin boards are covered in fabric.)

Here's a closer look at my drawers and bookshelf next to my table.  This is where I store a lot of frequently used materials like my monthly homework packets, articulation homework packets, and progress monitoring tools:

Here's my desk area.  It's hard to see in the picture, but I have my black inspirational quote posters on the bulletin board behind my desk.

A close up of my desk.  (Remember this DIY project?  I still love how it turned out, and it makes me smile to see this quote every day!)  Confession:  this is not what my desk normally looks like.  I moved my paperwork piles to my student table to take this picture.  :)

This is the wall by the door.  The big black cabinet has student reward charts on the outside, and stores a variety of supplies on the inside.  On the bulletin board, you can find my CCSS "I Can" Posters in lime green.  The chair and rugs are from IKEA and the lanterns are from Schoolgirl Style.

On the back of my door are my "See You Later, Alligator" posters that I use as an exit ticket for my articulation students.

Thanks for stopping by!  What do you think?


  1. I love your room!!! I am currently working on more decorations for my room (never mind that it's two weeks into the school year). I have your See Your Later posters on my door as you do. I am working on your I Can statements. I don't have a bulletin board, so I am laminating them to post on my white board. Your products are great!!

  2. I am new (again) to the speech therapy scene after 10 years at home with my babies. I ran across your blog yesterday and all of your posts are things I have been wondering about or wanting a resource for. I seriously think we could be friends in real life. ha! Very glad you decided to start a blog...so helpful for this newbie!

  3. I have to tell you Natalie, that is one of the most organized and clean classrooms I have ever seen. I have a few compulsive habits that force me to keep my office clear of clutter, but your classroom is a compulsive disorders wet dream. I love everything about it. It is so organized, I may have a few new ideas for my own office. Thanks.

    1. Natalie, I must admit I'm sort of obsessed with your room. It is bright, up-to-date, comfortable, functional and organized. I'm glad you shared it with us. Would you mind sharing your method of using your student motivational charts posted/hanging on your black cabinet above?

  4. I think one of my favorite things about this room is the built in shelf up high. I think it really opens up the space. Question : How do you easily reach the materials? Do you have a stepping stool?
