HINSDALE – The artwork of five Monroe School students is featured in a recently released Apple iBook that was created by art teacher Theresa McGee.

“One Best Thing – Inventing a Better World: Design Thinking Through STEAM Education” is available for download through iBooks and iTunes.

Students with included work are Rei Hemmer, Jack Kobus, Drew Merz, Andy Munoz and Merideth Callahan. They are now fifth graders as their work was completed during the previous school year, according to a news release from District 181.

McGee explains that the book was created for fourth-through-twelfth grade educators of all disciplines who are interested in integrating the STEAM model into their curriculum.

McGee’s text was among 100 chosen for publication out of 500 submissions of Apple Distinguished Educators from around the world, stated the release.
