I know teachers aren’t supposed to play favorites, but the student who created this piece wiggled her way into my heart.  She was often misunderstood, but I loved her energy and sense of humor.  She’s heading out into the real world this year I hope that feisty nature of hers will serve her well.

This is one of the more interesting portrayals of John Lennon the wall has ever seen.  I love the imagination that went into this piece and how cool is that paisley!

Sometimes the most simple images are the most powerful.  This student choose bold colors and created something that speaks volumes.
