As you may know, I am a freelance designer and a full-time educator. I have had the opportunity to work with Kansas City, Kansas Public School (KCKPS) this last year and it has been the best job of my career.
One of my roles in my current job is in the development of curriculum. As an Instructional Coach I have been brining teachers together in what I have been calling Science Tiger Teams.
Wikipedia defines a Tiger Team this way: "A tiger team is a diversified group of experts brought together for a single project, need, or event. They are usually assigned to investigate, solve, build, or recommend possible solutions to unique situations or problems. They are almost always populated with mature experts who know what's at stake, what needs to be done, and how to work well with others. Their strengths are diversity of knowledge, a single focus or purpose, cross-functional communications, decision-making sovereignty, and organizational agility."
The teachers have been doing some excellent work and I wanted to do something to serve as a small token of my appreciation. So I created some laptop stickers for them. I know it can never be proper thanks for the work they do, but I hope it lets them know how much I appreciate their work.
There are two pieces of "hidden" text. The first, KCKPS, should be pretty obvious. See if you can find the 500 that I hid to represent USD500.
Special thanks to Matt O' Rourke, and my wife Sarah for their invaluable feedback on this project. They both helped me improve this design in large ways.
