"We shape our buildings; thereafter they shape us." –– Winston Churchill Not often do new kindergartners arrive at school to hear they are going to be the teachers that day; however, when Mrs. Ranjbar and Mrs. Salmi’s afternoon class arrived on a Monday in early October, they heard exactly that.   Mrs. Ranjbar , Mrs. Salmi , and Principal Hurley had made plans to team up their kinder students with Professor Kevin O’Brien’s college students, all studying architectural design with a focus on education spaces at Cal Poly Pomona.

Yagmur Ersavas liked the fact that father/daughter pictures were taken. Lissette Lorenzana liked the balloons, the decorated cupcakes, the lollipops and ... read full article

James came up with a project that every teacher has hoped for, but no teacher wants to need.  Think about it.  James designed and donated for all 34  Palm Crest classrooms -- wait for it -- emergency potties that provide dignity and that everyone hopes no one will need. Before Lee’s project, the disaster instructions directed teachers to use waste baskets and an open closet door in the event of ... read full article
