Classroom Set Up Day 1

I can't believe it, today was the day. I was finally able to get into MY classroom, that's right I have my very own classroom.
I can't explain how exciting it was to walk up and see my name on the door!
Upon actually walking through the door though, I was a little lost. The janitors did an amazing job of cleaning the floors, I am pretty sure I could see my reflection in them. But the furniture was all in one giant pile in the middle of the room.
So it took me quite a while to figure out exactly where to begin...

After quite a bit of aimless wandering and some chit chat with the few other teachers on campus today I decided to put my desks in order first, I decided on two U shapes facing the front of the room.
(Please excuse the mess, I am still trying to figure out where to put all the boxes of stuff)
How do you set up your room?
After finishing the desks, I moved on to a few bulletins, I never realized how much work they were to put up. I didn't get nearly as far as I had hoped I would but I am trying to take it one step at a time.

I am pretty excited about this one. I found this adorable polka dot fabric for $7 at Walmart. Then I found the great idea for a telephone script on pintrest. Not quite sure what else is going on this bulletin.
Ideas?
The hardest part was the high bulletins and dear hubs was kind enough to come help after work, isn't he the greatest?!?
I have so much more left to do tomorrow. Thank goodness, my wonderful sister is going to come help for the day. Can't wait to see what I can get done!
