GREEN ISLAND, N.Y. (NEWS10) — Green Island Union Free School District teacher Emily Gabrielsen turned her classroom into a castle for her incoming fourth grade students. Gabrielsen, a new teacher to the Heatly School, said she was excited to have a Harry Potter theme in her classroom.

“This is the first year I will have students old enough to appreciate it,” Gabrielsen said. “I am excited to make my classroom someplace that is fun and magical!”

Gabrielsen came from a Long Island school district and knew she always wanted to be a teacher. “I truly knew that teaching was my life career,” Gabrielsen said.

The first day of classes at Green Island is September 7.
