Everybody secretly wants their own bronze statue. So I thought, Why not? They’re seniors and probably want to give back something lasting and meaningful. I said, “You’ve all benefited from great leaders at this school–classroom revolutionaries, visionaries, pioneers. You also have a Metal Shop, Art Department and $30,000 raised by your Duck Derby fundraiser…” Then I winked, struck a pose, and waited for someone to make a suggestion. The class went silent.  Nobody moved. Finally, Amber slapped her desk:  “Lets buy Ipads for Art and Shop!” she said. “Then their work will mean something forever because it’s on the Internet!”
