We have a designated staff table in the dining hall. This is not meant to be elitist; meals are just the best time for us to have staff meetings. At lunch the instructors meet at the staff table. At dinner the teacher’s assistants do, and the instructors eat with everyone else. At breakfast there are no staff meetings, so you are welcome to sit with staff members wherever they're sitting, including at the staff table. So the answer to this question is, yes for two of the three meals each day.
