"My name is Jonathan Hernandez. I am an eighth grade student in the Oconto Falls School District. I like playing soccer. "Futbol" means "soccer" in Spanish. I would like to play soccer in college and move to Mexico after college. In art class we were learning about the principles of design-emphasis, repetition, and contrast. Each student added a sign language letter, for emphasis, to their favorite logo. Every student in the art class enjoyed adding sign language to their project. They thought it was "cool." I enjoyed making the whole art project and especially appreciated that the hearing students were learning sign language through this art project."
