Inside the main building is Cheerilee's desk at which she teaches, a blackboard, bin, pull down screen, easel with flip-through large notepad, books on shelves, various paintings, a globe and many teaching aids. The desks and chairs, facing the front, are set in columns of 3 and rows of either 3 or 4 depending on the episode, for a total of either 9 or 12 desks and chairs. The desks have room for a book or paper and saddle bags lay at the side. The class seating arrangement varies throughout the series.
