With the school year ending, teachers with the Bishop Consolidated Independent School District have been returning to campus–in small groups for social distancing measures–to clean out their classrooms in preparation for summer.
For Luehrs Junior High School art teacher Carlos Martinez, that meant clearing his room of not only paintbrushes, textbooks and supplies, but also a six-foot model of Frankenstein’s monster he constructed out of papier-mâché.
Martinez said he had built the monster 18 years ago as a decoration for a Halloween haunted house.
“It was originally part of a set (of monsters), but this is the one that is still around,” he said. “The students love it.”
