My Classroom Door is Breaking Barriers

Student Council invited teachers and students to decorate classroom doors for Winter Spirit Week.

I found four interested students (two mostly helped, the other two just ran errands to and from the color printer), and…. we won a prize for Most Informative Door!


The theme of Winter Spirit Week was Olympics, so we chose to highlight a lot of the “firsts” of the Team U.S. athletes.

If you want to read any of the posters more closely, you can do so here.

We chose the following athletes:

  • Jordan Greenway
  • Erin Jackson
  • Adam Rippon
  • Elana Meyers Taylor
  • Maame Biney
  • Chloe Kim
  • Gus Kenworthy
  • Mirai Nagasu

So, the prize? Super cute. A medal. A red, white, and blue Olympics themed package of Oreos, and a bag of Twix (gold), Hershey’s (silver), and Rolo’s (bronze) candies. My students were pretty thankful.
