Speaker 2: This year there is a lot more shifting. So all of the teachers have a shared workspace, there aren't any teacher desks in the classrooms themselves.
Speaker 1: Okay.
Speaker 2: Teachers are moving from one room to another.
Speaker 1: I'm losing stuff.
Speaker 2: In preparation for this, there's actually quite a few things that I've had to do.
Speaker 1: Back and forth.
Speaker 2: I found a card and tried to include some of the things that I loved about my classroom that I'd had for 19 years. I did a lot of purging and a lot of careful thinking about what was really important to a classroom.
Speaker 1: We're gonna take a look here.
Speaker 2: I took my entire file cabinet, and I scanned it. It's all electronic.
I also tried to be really thoughtful about how to make sure we, as a group of learners, understand that we have agency over our own space.
Speaker 1: Today, I need us to be in a small, tight circle on the floor. So we're gonna go down to the end of the hallway. There's a nice space there.
Speaker 2: I don't want to be defined by a traditional classroom any more. I can't be defined by a traditional classroom any more.
Speaker 1: This is good right? This works. Yeah.
Speaker 2: We will be a class and we will be a community wherever we're at, and that the people are far more important than the walls that will define us.
