Some Virginia teachers couldn’t afford their dream classroom, so a group of strangers made it for them.
Samantha Patton, a functional academics teacher, described the classroom around her.
“It’s kind of boring. It’s square,” Patton said.
It’s the classroom where she and Sterling Middle School teacher Allison Steves, spend hours working with students who have differing special needs.
The teachers said the room makes it tough on both them and the students.
“We are in a space not conducive to what needs to happen for these students,” Steves said.
