Elementary school teacher uses graphic design background to spread message

A physical education teacher for Glen Acres Elementary School in West Chester, Pennsylvania believes that public schools has been put in a negative light in recent months, and she decided to attempt to change that. Graphic design students may be interested to know how this teacher, whose name is Andrea Bornino, got her statement across by designing a T-shirt, JC Online reports.

Bornino's design summarized why she is proud to be a pubic educator. She started with 20 T-shirts, which quickly grew in demand and expanded to surrounding school districts. A local graphic design company decided to help produce the shirts. Now every Friday, the entire staff of the elementary school wears them, according to the website.

Individuals who are seeking graphic design degrees and wish to express their beliefs through design may want to start looking for an institute. The National Association of Schools of Art and Design accredits almost 300 schools, and there are a significant amount of programs for graphic design in these institutions, according to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics.
