Conversation 118 – Staci Lamb – Classroom 9 3/4

By Shane Lawrence

Ed is a weekly podcast about the teaching life. No lists, no inspirational quotes: just honest convo's about the lives of teachers.

When Staci Lamb decorated her classroom as a labour of love for her students, she had no idea that a video of her work would go completely viral. With over 2 million views of her Harry Potter-inspired classroom makeover, Staci’s grade 9 room is now somewhat of a celebrity. We got together to chat about her inspiration for doing so, the real nuts and bolts of how a classroom like that works, and the fact that kids are still kids, no matter what. We also touch on some of the internet response she received, both positive and negative.
