This board is filled with pegs that each have a statement that students may or may not identify with. Some examples are "I wear glasses", "I am competitive", and "I sing in the shower". Each student chose their own color of embroidery floss, knotted it to their teacher's peg, and looped the string around the statements that apply to them, creating their own path of identity. At the end of each string, students tied small washers (that were so kindly donated from Whitmore Ace Hardware in town). On this washer they wrote their name, initials, or short message.
It is currently up in the air as to what will be done with this board in the future. But for now, this crazy web of string is a visual reminder of the community we are here at Anna McDonald.
