Recent construction has brought new areas to the building such as collaboration spaces, rooms with glass walls, new science labs, and extended rooms. Science teacher Patrick Huddleston enjoys his new space.
“I love the classroom. It’s gigantic and super fancy. It allows me to separate labs from our classrooms, so I don’t have people messing around with stuff all of the time. It allows me to create separation which I really enjoy, ” Huddleston said.
Along with the science department, English teacher Allison Craig had open classrooms with large glass doors and windows.
“I really like it. I like that I have a lot of different spaces for students to work depending on what works best for them whether it be standing, sitting, or working at a table. It’s really nice to collaborate in class now that we have tables in my classroom. At first I thought I wasn’t going to like the window wall, but actually I really like it. It gives a lot of nice light and it’s nice to be able to come out here and see if students are reading or working independently and keep a track on them,” Craig said.
The collaboration space is frequently used by math teacher Sarah Levian.
“I really like being able to take the kids out to work in a different space, and have a change of scenery. I think it makes it more exciting and interesting, and gives them a chance to engage in groups and collaborate with each other” Levian said.
Rita Frakes, got an expanded classroom.
“Oh my gosh I can’t say anything bad. I just can’t wait to get finally tucked in and move everything where I want it. It’s amazing, it’s worth the wait, I just love it love it love. I like it that we’re not feeling like we’re stacked on top of each other with equipment, cabinets, and other things. We’re spread out and we can move freely and not feel like we’re on top of each other. The only thing that I don’t like is the fact that it looks like a hospital,” Frakes said.
The spaces brought separation between different aspects of a class, a new environment to the school, and more space to work.
