Excel Student Journeys

This website was kindly put together by DePaul’s New Media Studies Class.  It chronicles many of the struggles that our students go through.  This anthology of prints and stories was done in Mrs. Walker’s Art Class.  The students have done magnificent work and I highly recommend you walk a “mile” in their shoes.

Praise goes to Mrs. Walker and all the students who participated in this project.

All Students-Goodbye

Dear Students,

I will not be returning next year and I will miss you. Please remember that education gives us choices that we would otherwise not have. School is your “job” and you owe it to yourself to get the best foundation for your future. Be good, respect yourself and others, and have a wonderful summer vacation.


Ms. Edison
