Artistic Teacher Paints BrainWise Murals in Her Classroom

A HOPE Online Academy classroom mentor used her considerable artistic skills to paint her interpretation of the 10 Wise Ways.  Her art as a teaching tool is a big hit with students and teachers.  The vivid pictures help students use their thinking skills and inspire them to create their own BrainWise drawings.  Here’s what students had to say:
