Young teachers spending hundreds to outfit classrooms - Hamilton - CBC News | Learning Environments | Scoop.it
Young, first time teachers are buying hundreds of dollars worth of supplies for classrooms out of their own pockets.
Lyndsay Buehler's insight:
It's not that we need to spend money to make kids happy, but there is definitely a convenience factor for me. If it makes things easier and more enjoyable, spending your own money is worth it?

Lyndsay Buehler's insight:

Perspective from an architect.  Story of TheThirdTeacher project.  I like this quote: “More than the physical space, the environment includes the way time is structured and the roles we are expected to play. It conditions how we feel, think, and behave; and it dramatically affects the quality of our lives,” explains designer and education theorist Jim Greenman.
