As I have stated before, I love the quirky things middle schoolers do. They are a source of endless smiles if you let them roam a bit. Our last project was a bit scary. During the course of it signs with the words “Chin Up” and “Be Fierce” kept showing up on the walls as the due date came near. The project came and went, and the signs came down, but apparently the words got stuck in the kids’ heads. There are always doodles that mysteriously appear on the back board that give me an endless supply of smiles in the morning. The doodle below gave me the first smile of today. It is from three separate authors that put together create some kind of deep symbolic 14 year old message.
