Madeline Albrittain, Spanish teacher, shared, "In Spanish IV, we just finished our art unit, which primarily focused on the life and art of one of Mexico´s greatest artists, Frida Kahlo. Students explored her life and legacy by researching self-portraits and reading the story, "Frida Kahlo," by Kristy Placido. As a final project, students opted to demonstrate understanding in a multitude of ways." 
Mary Rojack '22 said, "My favorite part about learning about Frida was learning about her culture and learning about the reasons why she portrayed herself as ugly. I think in today's society self-perception is so important to learn about and being able to learn from past experiences of a woman in a different time period and completely different culture is really important."
