    You may want to bring a measuring tape with you.
    *measure windows if you want to make some cute curtains (you don't need to sew if you just use the iron-on seaming and mount with a tension rod)
    *measure bulletin boards so that you can start shopping for borders and bulletin board sets

    Also look at the storage that the room offers. You'll want to be planning for anything that you'll need to purchase so that you can keep an eye on summer sales.

    Be sure to find out when the school re-opens and when it'll be clear for you to get in and start working. Some schools have pretty strict guidelines about this.

    Pay attention to where the outlets and technology plug-ins are so that you can be thinking about your room arrangement. Often, things like computer placement or TV placement can't be changed. You'll want to plan around that.

    Take note of how many desks, tables and other furniture there are in the room. That'll be something you'll need to know in order to plan your room.

    I would also see if you can find out approximately how many students you can expect to have.

    :s) Have soooo much fun! I'll never forget how I felt walking into my first classroom. Soak up that feeling!!
