Kristin Whitney’s classroom at Wilmot Elementary doesn’t look anything like you might expect.
Gone are the rows of desks for the fourth- and fifth-graders. In their place are a couch, high-backed chair, pillows, kitchen table with chairs, a camp chair and tall desks. There are four traditional desks congregated together with balls rather than chairs.
Whitney’s desk is also gone because she said having her desk as the center of attention made it seem like it was her classroom when it should be the students’ classroom.
