At the end of the school year, many teachers at Summerville High School were informed that they were to move classrooms. This change has caused a disruption to some of students and to some teachers as well.

These students have essentially had to relearn the school due to so many teachers moving. Students who have been here for the last few years have been affected the most.

For the first few weeks it severely disrupted traffic throughout the school; however, for some it isn’t that big of a deal.

“None of my old teachers that I like to visit moved, so my route has pretty much stayed the same” stated Ivey McCafferty, junior.

She was the exception, not the rule, as many students find it annoying.

“I mean, we liked the room we were in last year for lunch, and then come to find out that the new teacher in there didn’t really like when we gamed in there. So we had to find a new room” shared Zachary Alexander, junior.

Despite the strong opinions many have, some students are apathetic.

“I don’t really like any of my old teachers that moved anyways” explained Sebastian Gonzalez, junior.

The school’s librarian, Bobbie Smith, was a teacher for 16 years at the district’s alternative school.

“To me it’s [frustrating and good] because as far as not to get into a rut. A new change, a new space, a new chance to decorate. If you’re in the same room every year you kinda don’t change things up. But then there’s the headache of having to move, especially if you’re a teacher who has tons of things to move” Mrs. Smith said.

“I don’t think it affects the student body that much. It might confuse them at first but once they learn where they are it’s fine” Mrs. Smith continued.

The one point everyone could agree on was that having more classrooms available is a good thing.

“It’s cool that they have more room, and the new building is super nice” commented Joshua Johnston.
