Thelma Eller

Ms. Eller and her partners develop “Hiding Places,” a project in which students learn about the habits of animals. Students select an animal to research and read stories and articles about animal habits. A resident visual artist from Young Audiences of Southeast Texas, a local arts education organization, works in teams to create a classroom book, written and illustrated by the students, who work with partners to create pages. Students also create tiles which illustrate animal habits and are displayed as a mural in the school hallway.
