We’ve seen enough of this last year and now we’re onto more positive things in our lessons.
This was a great project for my seniors. They couldn’t get enough of turning themselves into Zombies! Putting them all up the wall had a great impact on my them when they saw all the others. Laughing, amazement, and ah hah moments abounded!

Welcome one and all to Mr. MB’s (Mr. Middlebrook) chill Graphic Design Class! We’re just starting out so I’ll be listing all the latest assignments. Be careful and don’t miss one.
Let me say, I feel very welcomed here at Contreras by the Social Justice Academy. You students, staff, and administrators are all so awesome and I feel very fortunate to be teaching here. So lets make it a really good year!
Our first project of the year was a success! It started out as an exploratory exercise that took on a life of its own. Basically, it was a free drawing exercise and then we added bacon since many people believe that everything goes better with bacon.
See some of our great examples.
