A hangout/reading area is a place where people go to have fun and relax during the stresses of their everyday life. Our client representative on this project is Pam Brittenburg. She is an English and Spanish teacher at ZANE middle school. She also opens her classroom during breaks for anyone to come in and have fun on days when the conditions outside are less than favorable. This hangout/reading area will serve as a place within her classroom for the kids to engage with one another and relax during such days.
