Staff spotlight! Meet our new school counselor Melissa. Melissa chose to work at EOC because she loves how individualized the learning is. She enjoys getting to know each student's story and being able to walk along side them as they dream, grow, and explore new pieces of who they are and who they want to become. Chat Melissa up about travel, spending time outside, and volunteering!
On Thursday, the advisories of Chris, Cathy and Gigi went to Puzzleworks Escape and Vertical Endeavors. Two different escape rooms were successfully escaped, many walls were climbed, and students had fun socializing.
Creator Spotlight! Check out Marcus's Band-aid package redesign. Marcus took a class on graphic design last year and started using his skills when he got Adobe Illustrator through EOC. This is his first attempt at package redesign- inspired by a video he watched. He chose to do a retro upgrade of the plain old boring Band-aid box using Adobe Illustrator and Adobe Photoshop.

NEW! Advisor Spotlight! Larry! Larry loves working at a place where students can be in charge of their own learning. Watching students make discoveries, traveling with students, and seeing the art, writing, music, and intellectual creations his students produce brings him joy at work. Outside of work, Larry enjoys gardening, cycling, playing guitar, coding, reading and history. #lifegoalslarry

Perspective is everything! Advisor Mike sure "dressed" up for his day in Chicago!
Strike a pose! Students attended the play Hamilton in Chicago and none of the staff back home are the least bit jealous at all.
Cool beans. Students took photos at the iconic bean in Chicago.
EOC's very own 2012 graduate, Tony Palumbo, wrote, directed, produced and starred in a Halloween musical theater performance at the Minnsky Theatre. It is awesome to see our graduates continue to pursue their passions. Such a TREAT to see it!
Bean there, done that.
