3rd Grade Teacher Completely Transforms Her Classroom Into Hogwarts From 'Harry Potter' 😮

Who says schools can't be magical?

Third grade teacher Tressa Bargella transformed her classroom to mimic the Harry Potter-style enchantment found within the walls of Hogwarts. Minus the diabolical Dark Lord and Dementors, of course.

Bargella, 39, teaches at Valley View School District in Peckville, Pennsylvania, and cleverly incorporated whimsical references from the movies and books into everyday learning.

The results are spellbinding.


Students first pass through a brick-walled entryway resembling platform 9 3/4.


Once inside, the students have designated areas for their backpacks and jackets.


How can anyone not be excited to learn in this environment?



The classroom is packed with references to the Harry Potter books and films, including Quidditch goal posts, an Invisibility Cloak rack, and even The Monster Book of Monsters in its own cage.


Even Moaning Myrtle makes an ominous appearance. Looks like she wants to be a part of the class too.




Her detailing is brilliant. She can chalk it up to her enthusiasm for making learning fun.




This is so clever, can't you see?





These can be distracting if uprooted. Beware the Mandrake!


Here's an incentive for good behavior. No one wants to go to Azkaban: the principal's office.



This idea scores some major points.




Here's the proud teacher with her intelligent army.


In a Facebook post, Bargella wrote about the time she invested in creating the unique learning environment for her students.

I am COMPLETELY DRAINED but it was worth it. I honestly lost track of how many hours it took me but in the end, I spend more time here than at home some days and it is now my happy place.

At the beginning of the school year, the teacher hoped her students would be bedazzled by her efforts.

Hope my new little wizards love being inside my Hogwarts walls as much as I do! Here's to a magical new year!!!



The students weren't the only muggles impressed.



After the unveiling of her classroom makeover and her Facebook post, which was liked more than 100,000 times, many adults expressed their interest in repeating third grade and being whisked away to this fantastical place.

Though they might not always be easy to notice, being single has numerous advantages.

Primarily, that you are never beholden to anyone, and can live your life exactly as you so choose.

Of course, for some people, there is the cold comfort that being single means that you are out of a bad relationship.

Giving you the foundation to avoid some past mistakes.

The key to any successful relationship is communication.

Every family has a black sheep or every family in its entirety are black sheep.

What is a "black sheep" anyway?

It used to mean a person who brought shame or embarrassment to a family, but it's more often used now to mean the member who is just very different from everyone else—sometimes in a good way.
