Ms. Brommitt was a beloved first grade teacher for over 30 years. When she passed away from cancer, the school community wanted to celebrate her special contribution to the school. They considered a plaque or a bench, but fortunately someone on the PTA suggested something more memorable… perhaps a mural? Great idea! I interviewed her closest allies on the staff to find out what made Cheryl unique, and what images might best represent her. We included a montage of her favorite things: books, pigs, fairies, flowers, a rooster and, of course, her Calico Cat. The result was this sweet scene, painted on the wall outside her first grade classroom.
