As most of you know, my mom, Mrs. DiZefalo, is the art teacher at BBES.
Since we’ve been home doing virtual learning, she started making YouTube videos for her classes. Even though we are not at school, Mrs. DiZefalo is still coming up with art lessons and kids are turning them in.

Head out the window
Watching the trees
Sprint along the endless road behind us.

Right now I would love to fly away to a far away land through giant white clouds in the big blue sky, or swim in the cool blue ocean with the turtles and fish as my friends, but I’m stuck in the classroom not thinking a girl like me could ever change the world. I am not an amazingly intelligent witch like Hermione Granger, or a young heroine with a dazzling imagination like Anne of Green Gables. I’m just a quiet girl, looking for her place in the world, yet having no luck.
