The Dream Flag Project: Dreams Gone Global For A Local Community School

By Teachers.Net News Desk • Sep 1st, 2015
The Dream Flag Project started small in 2003 at The Agnes Irwin School, a K-12 school for girls in Bryn Mawr, PA. Students were taught about dream poetry by Langston Hughes and created their own dream poems. Student poems were printed and decorated on 8 ½ x 11 inch pieces of cloth with the entire collection of student poems connected on a dream flag clothesline. The premise for dream flags is modeled after Nepalese Buddhist prayer flags with the ultimate goal to share positive hopes and dreams with the world. With more than 70,000 dream flag K-12 student participants in 38 US states and 18 countries including Australia, Belize, Canada, China, Costa Rica, France, Honduras, Japan, Kenya, Morocco, Mexico, Nepal, Pakistan, Rwanda, Romania, Russia, South Africa, and Zambia, the Dream Flag Project is catching on in many schools.

A Campaign to Fund Development of a Toy for Kids Who Wear Glasses

By Teachers.Net News Desk • Aug 1st, 2015
I love kids, and I wrote a book (in verse) called "Grady Gets Glasses" about an adorable rabbit who wears glasses. Grady explains "far-sighted" and "near-sighted", how glasses help us see the whole world, small and large, and he makes every child who wears glasses feel "special"! The illustrations are adorable, done by my former student, artist, and Carnegie-Mellon grad Lauren Givens Wood. Our dream is to have a Grady plush animal friend 12 inches tall (wearing glasses, of course- RED glasses!) available for purchase so kids can be with their friend Grady.
