Spanish teacher Sra. Meghan King utilized her students to dress up and form a “wax museum” in the library on Nov. 30 and Dec. 1.

“The wax museum offers lower levels of Spanish the opportunity to speak more fluently,” King said.

The wax museum was a project that allowed students in Spanish IV to dress up as someone from a Hispanic background who has made a difference in the Hispanic community. Many students chose to dress up as someone they have the same interests as, or someone who interests them.

“I was Che Guevara,” Sam Gandhi (11) said. “I picked him because he was interesting to learn a side of him that is contradictory of what history tells us.”

Students had to learn the background of their assigned character and write a script in Spanish and read to other levels of Spanish classes. Kandace Miller (12) was Ellen Ochoa, a female astronaut.

“I love space, it’s so fun,” Miller said. “I’m really into science.”

Arianna Ellison (12) was Judge Sonia Sotomayor, one of the first female Spanish judge to be on the Supreme Court, and the third female judge.

“I learned that she is a diabetic,” Ellison said. “That taught her a lot of discipline even though she had a rough life.”
