How is everything with you, I picked interest on you after going through your short profile and deemed it necessary to write you immediately. I have something very vital to disclose to you, but I found it difficult to express myself here, since it's a public site.Could you please get back to me on:( mrsstellakwale200@gmail.com) ) for the full details.

Have a nice day

Thanks God bless.

Mrs Stella.

Wow, this chapter is very helpful for me in thinking of my current classrooms, which are varied in their environment and missions.  Perhaps the most challenging environment, in which I struggle to carve out a “home” for learning, is my Friday gig teaching in a small, Catholic elementary school in a far western suburb.  It is here that I am substituting for my sister on maternity leave.  Already my status is temporary.  Furthermore, the school building is small, and so, the art room doubles as the library and music room.  The multi-functionality makes for a crowded room in which 115 preschool through eighth graders divided among 7 periods make art for 55 minutes.   All that said, I want to take ownership of the space to make it a more democratic and humanized room. 

            I’m inspired to begin with identifying the core values of the classroom that the authors propose and derive from them classroom commitments.  Then, I’ll have to get creative with the built environment, which can feel oppressive and often blocks fluidity.  I’d like to create an environment that allows for discussion and instruction but also allows for individual “studio” space.  As artists we know environment is important in shaping our work.  It would be ideal if students had enough square footage to really focus on their making.  One simple way I’m thinking of laying claim as a class to this multi-purpose room is by designating a wall for inspiration and ideas.  I’d then invite students to post images, quotes, magazine clippings, sketches, etc. of things they are interested in or inspired by.  In this way we can begin to form unity, a group identity based on individuals, and possible concepts for dialogue and curriculum.  It’s a starting point.  Do you have any experience with classroom environments that were particularly successful especially when you were either an outsider (either as student or teacher)?
