Don't understand why my code is not working ?

person.js
function Person(firstName, lastName) {
  this.firstName = firstName;
  this.lastName = lastName;
}

Person.prototype.fullName = function() {
 return this.firstName + " " + this.lastName; 
};
teacher.js
function Teacher(firstName, lastName, roomNumber) {
  this.firstName = firstName;
  this.lastName = lastName;
  this.room = roomNumber;
  Person.call(this, firstName, lastName);

}

//Teacher.prototype = Object.create(Person.prototype)
