Fildalgo Elementary 6th Grade Painting


For those of you who are familiar with Fildago all know how wonderful Mrs. Chavers is!  She was the 6th grade writing teacher.  This years focus was on poems....and boy did all the kids do a great job!  Through Mrs. Chavers inspiration, the 6th grade class now loves to write!  After a long career with the school district, Sherry is retiring.  She will be greatly missed!  I was asked to do a painting of her from the 6th grade class.  The students came up with an idea to have "birds flying away" honor of her retiring.  Sherry loves birds!  We thought it would be funny to have children "stuck" all over her, because she loves kids.....and she had to be holding a pencil!!!!  I thought it would be a funny touch to add "I LOVE WRITING" on her t-shirt!  The painting turned out bright and fun just like her personality.  She received her painting as a SURPRISE on literacy night at the school!  What a great end to the school year!  Here is my painting below:
