People talk about teaching in a "building." They say "the kids enter the building at ..." "The doors to the building are ...." "Children can be in the building but not in the classroom" This sounds incredibly foreign to me. At my school, and at every school I've taught at, there is no "building." There are just rows of classrooms that open to the outside. There's an office and a cafeteria. To get from either of those two places from my classroom, This characteristic of my school has been a factor in the views I've expressed on a few threads about what teachers wear and on student supervision. I'm wondering how many teachers teach in a non-building like mine.
