When Hubler found out he would be teaching in a different classroom this year, he dedicated some of his spare summer time — about seventy hours — to converting it into a Harry Potter-themed paradise.
Hogwarts 2017-18! I got to reveal the classroom to my students yesterday and they loved it! Seeing their faces light up made all the time and effort put into this totally worth it! We're going to have a fun year!
I’m a big fan of Harry Potter and the themes and messages in the stories about friendship, acceptance, and doing the right thing in the face of adversity. I think those are great values to pass along to my students, but the classroom also serves as a way to build connections with my students by letting them know something personal about their teacher.

When the students first saw the room they were stunned. Many of them stopped in the doorway in shock and to take it all in and then they all scrambled around the room, eyes darting around to catch every detail in every corner. Their favorite spaces were Dumbledore's office and the common room. They also are very intrigued by my magic wand that turns on our class projector.
