Dawn Louis-Jean, an art teacher at Ascend Leadership Academy in Sanford, N.C., teaches students in grades six through 12. At the start of the school year, she used The Community Circle Project as one of the first assignments.
“We are doing all virtual learning, so their whole lives have changed from last year. I wanted to let them talk about how Covid-19 has impacted and, perhaps, permanently changed their lives,” she said.
Students were given a supply list for the project and parents purchased supplies on their own. Fifty students created these amazing circles.
A big thank-you to Dawn and her students for sharing their thoughts through creativity.
