    My classroom would be much larger since I have students with special needs. The teaching area would have a doorway open to the kitchen. There would be two stalls in the bathroom rather than one. There would be shelving in the bathroom. There would be more I Pads with an Apple account already on them. There would be a physical therapy swing. Classroom snacks would be available daily.

    My dream classroom would offer a variety of areas for learning. Varied seating styles and areas would differentiate the different activities taking place at any given time during the school day. This classroom would also offer a variety of sensory areas so students are able to utilize these areas to regroup, relax and refocus and open themselves up to being able to learn throughout the school day. Inviting decorations as well as evidence of student work and the school theme/mascots will be incorporated throughout the room with a common color theme for individual areas as well as curriculum units.

    All of the broken printers, copiers, and televisions in the back of the room would be cleared out. There would be a doorway to outside so we could use the grassy courtyard outside the room as a space to learn, play, and grow. There would be a light grid on the ceiling so students could have professional lighting for their performances. One wall would be lined with mirrors so kids could practice dance. There would be ample storage for student projects.
