Kyle Ely, a middle school teacher in Oregon, spent five weeks of his summer converting his classroom into ACTUAL Hogwarts for the upcoming school year, and the transformation is INCREDIBLE.

"My main goal every day that I show up to work is to connect with my students and get them excited to be in my class and to learn," Ely told BuzzFeed. "I figured that incorporating my passion for Harry Potter would be a great way to create a bridge between teacher and student to start building those connections with them."

Ely also told BuzzFeed that all the Harry Potter memorabilia belongs to him, and that he's been collecting it since he was in middle school.

"The BEST reaction was a student stopped in the doorway stunned and his jaw nearly fell to the floor," Ely told BuzzFeed. "His eyes were wide opened and darting around to every corner of the room to catch all the details. That was a lot of fun to watch."

To be honest, wouldn't we ALL have that very same reaction???

"I love Harry Potter because of the impact it had on me as a kid. Being a kid can be tough sometimes, and there were times where I felt weird or that I didn't belong to any circle of friends. Reading the books was a way to escape and feel like I did belong," Ely said.

"The lessons in the books about acceptance, loyalty, and integrity stayed with me and inform a lot of the philosophy I have in my approach to teaching and how I interact with my students."
