Inspired by Coffee

The other day I was sitting in a coffee shop and thought to myself, "Self, this is a nice place to be. I like sitting here." To which I responded, "Yeah, why don't our classrooms look more like this?"
Not the actual shop, but you get the point...
Internal monologues aside, I have honestly begun to wonder why we don't draw more inspiration from places that people enjoy spending time in? What if our students actually enjoyed being in a classroom? Next year, for the first time in 7 years, I will have my own classroom... I desperately want to make it a space that feels good. I might even spring for an espresso machine.
