When the new Natick High School was designed, and I was fortunate enough to meet with the architects about the library. One area that was very important to me was having the ability to display. It wasn't just for our purposes but having a place for other teachers to showcase the projects their students have worked so hard on to complete! It has been a gradual process but I am happy to say right now we are bursting at the seams with projects from such a variety of classes. I can't tell you what a difference it makes in the library. Aside from showing the creative effort of our students, the collaboration between the library and subject teachers, it makes the library pop with color, happiness and creativity! We have everything from kites from the preschoolers where we read a book about kites and they painted their idea of the "perfect kite," to projects depicting themes from The Catcher in the Rye from our 11th graders. To really capture the essence of what it looks like, the ever amazing Ms. Carrick assistant extraordinaire, created the following Animotos!
