I was inspired by my students. I love the seemingly endless amount of energy they have and wanted to tap into that by getting them excited to come to class and have fun learning,” Kyle told Bored Teachers.

It took me five weeks over the summer to put it all together in the classroom. I had been planning this since last school and purchased some supplies online before the end of the year.” he said. “Then I came in and started work at the end of July when we were having a triple digit heat wave.

“The students were stunned at first. Some of them were in my class last year so they knew I liked Harry Potter and had done a small transformation then, but even those students had no idea how over the top I had gone and they were surprised as well. Almost every students paused for a second when they first stepped into the classroom when they saw everything for the first time.”

“I would advise any teachers who are interested in creating a fun learning environment to plan ahead of time by drawing layouts of how you want the classroom to look and flow and also have fun with decorating. It was a lot of work for me, but I enjoyed every minute of those 70 hours because I kept thinking about my students the whole time.”
