A human line for timeline

-A A +A
By Sharon Warner

A timeline “shows your past to now,” according to Caleigh, a student in Phyllis Poston’s first-grade room at Wright Elementary, where classmates held onto each other to form a human line. Outside the classroom, a bulletin board is full of long sheets of paper where children have posted photos from earlier days to the present, with drawings indicating what the future will hold. Paige said, “It shows the past like a picture when I was born to grown up, and ends smiling with what I want to be – a cowgirl.” They all knew the future depended on going to college and that dreams can come true, like Paige’s, or they may not as one child explained, “Maybe you want to be a vet but didn’t get to.”
