Mrs. Santos is one of my favorite teachers at Dobie. I’ve had her this year and last year for art, and it was my favorite class. She is a very amiable teacher who has a lot of sensational projects. She’s taught me how to sew a stuffed animal, and she showed me what I could do with clay. Her art is very commendable, and I’ve had a lot of fun doing her projects.
Although her projects were made for fun, they’ve been a stress relief for me. Whenever I’m in her class, I ignore all the pain that’s in my head. I put aside the shadows in my heart and put all of my focus on the projects. I once did a clay model of a Demogorgon to represent all the bitterness I had inside of me. I felt like all the demons were put in that one statue, and it made me feel glorious.
Mrs. Santos is honestly a very impassive teacher. She’s very creative, and she inspires me to do my own projects at home. One time, when we finished our sewing unit, I was curious about what it would be like to sew clothing. When I went home, I started to experiment with fabric and I made a pair of gloves. Although they weren’t the greatest gloves in the world, I had a lot of fun making them.
I really enjoy Mrs. Santos’ class. Although the students can be a pain sometimes, it’s really fun. I’m grateful for Mrs. Santos. I’m sure doesn’t know it now, but she’s had a pretty big impact on my life. She’s helped me with a lot of pain that I had last year, and I’m going to miss her when I go to high school.
