Students give life to history

Jo Maher, a second-grade teacher at Winding Waters K-8 School, helps Seann Bennett, 8, with his moustache before her class' recent wax museum presentation. The children chose historic figures, researched them, dressed as those characters and recited information about them to parents and visitors. Seann represented Theodore Roosevelt; Emma Calderon was Rosa Parks; Sebasthian Deleon-Perez was Orville Wright; Jayden Doctor was Henry Ford; Logan Fletcher was Thomas Edison; Emily Hinton was Helen Keller; Naviah Holland was Maya Angelou; Elaina Kirkland was Virginia Apgar; Noah Ladd was Neil Armstrong; Skylar Lambert was Abraham Lincoln; Victoria Mainella was Betsy Ross; Jianna Perez was Clara Barton; Dimitri Sabino-Feliciano was George Washington; Vincenzo Sagarese was John F. Kennedy; Jessica Santiago was Amelia Earhart; Olivia Serralles was Sally Ride; Natalie Strickland was Elizabeth Blackwell; and Isaiah Fuentes was Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Paulette Lash Ritchie, Times correspondent
