Erin Klein @KleinErin is an interior designer turned second grade teacher from Bloomfield Hills, Michigan. Her room is epic and designed to be attractive and also take into account the research on classroom design. (Read Mindshift’s Popular Article: To Foster Productivity and Creativity in Class, Ditch the Desks! which features her work.)
Erin’s buzzword is “aesthetically pleasing brain-friendly classrooms” and we should all aspire to this.
Every elementary teacher should listen to this podcast as well as elementary admins who want to improve learning and retention.
One of my favorite things said in this podcast was when Erin busted the myth that covering the wall with posters might just not be the best thing for learning, instead suggests that teachers rotate material at eye level.
