Hispanic Heritage Day

All the students had a blast filling their passports and attending the assembly on Hispanic Heritage day.  I chose to dress up as iconic Mexican artist Frida Kahlo for the day.  The students learned that she painted self portraits because she was largely bedridden from a trolley accident.  We also talked about how she didn’t conform to social norms – like keeping her unibrow or wearing men’s suits, which women did not do during that time.

The two most common questions I got all day were, “Can I pet the monkey?” and “Is your unibrow real?”  Yes and no respectively 🙂
