Since Monday, I have been praised numerous times by coworkers, who have said that the artwork has changed the atmosphere in the school. Students now have something more than “Best Diaries” to look at before and after their classes.
Additionally, the four boys have been showing off their work. They are proud and rightfully so.
Here are the finished robots!

Students are curious. Parents who come in to pay their bills or to consider the school see the work, and I have been told many have asked about it. Questions like, “Where did they make the art?” “What was the class?” … even the delivery guy checked out the student’s self portraits.
My boss stopped me today, and as she does when she wants to communicate something quickly, she had another teacher tell me how wonderful the art display is, which my director keeps calling “decoration.” I am excited that the artwork is well received. The “Mr. Burns” in the back of my head is steepling his hands and saying, “Excellent, Kimberly … Excellent.” Hopefully soon I will have another class!
