Jill Diedrich's insight:
"Providing the Learning Environment That Kids Need

Flexible classrooms give students a choice in what kind of learning space works best for them, and help them to work collaboratively, communicate, and engage in critical thinking.

Their students' grades have improved.Their students seem happier and more engaged.Their students are participating more and having more invigorating conversations."
