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.

I don't see the appeal of these rooms.

Why would one enjoy being trapped in a room?

When you watch people trapped in a movie you cheer for their release.

But this activity has gotten super popular.

And people have gotten real creative in their escapes.

Redditor CaptainCatButt wanted to hear confessions from the great escapes. They asked:

"Escape Room employees, what's the weirdest way you've seen customers try and solve an escape room?"

Much of the nation continues to reel from the news that a leaked draft opinion indicated the Supreme Court's ruling on Dobbs v. Jackson Women's Health Organization will move to strike down Roe v. Wade, the 1973 landmark decision that protects a person's right to choose reproductive healthcare without excessive government restriction.

Many people remember what it was like in the days before women could seek an abortion; many innocent women died in the absence of proper medical care or were forced to birth children they could not afford, trapping them in poverty.

But could a ruling overturning Roe v. Wade signal the loss of other rights in the future, especially those decided on the right to privacy, on which Roe was hinged?

People shared their thoughts with us after Redditor thisiscubes asked the online community,

"Americans of Reddit, what are your thoughts on Roe v. Wade being overturned by SCOTUS as per draft reports?"
