So remember a couple of weeks back I went to visit the over-achieving class of 3rd and 4th graders at Gould Elementary?
Well guess what I got in the mail this week. Go ahead… I’ll wait.
Nevermind, it was a packet of the most creative thank you cards I’ve ever gotten, (and I went to art School so that’s saying something).
They ranged from the minimal to the creative, all based around a laptop motif, but I’m a bit torn as to how to feel. On one hand I’m deeply touched that they even remember my name, on the other I’m proud that they seemed to enjoy the lesson (some of them even expressing the desire to become web designers themselves) and on yet another I’m immensely jealous of them having such an awesome teacher. Needless to say I want to be like Mr. McGrath when I grow up, or at least send my kid to his class…whichever comes first.
Check out just a few of the gems below:
This one was brought to you by Dell. It had a mouse and everything.
The IBM Toughbook approach, plus this proves that Super Mario is timeless.
And of course, there’s the iCard (this is probably how thin the next iBook will be anyway).
