Education Face Masks: Your Essential and Self-Expression

Face masks have slowly become part of our daily lives, accompanying us on trips to the grocery store, work, and even our morning walks. This sudden yet necessary modification to our sense of normalcy is, unsurprisingly, not welcomed by many.

Wearing face masks has taken away our sense of individuality. With part of the face obscured, the focal point of human vanity and self-expression is diffused.

While it is all true that being masked has greatly complicated our expression of creativity and individuality, fret not! For it is the problem itself that contains our solution. If we really think about it, much of this discomfort can be avoided if we adapt face masks as vessels for creativity and art. Let’s explore how graphic face masks can boost our self-expression and improve social interactions.

BE KIND!

For all we know, kindness matters! That’s why we came up with the idea of putting this message on a mask but in a more serious way – by hand sign language. The power of just a simple “Be Kind” is enormous! We have all heard that, “People may not remember what you said, or what you did, but they will always remember how you made them feel.”, so why not leave them with something positive? 

SAY IT WITH A MESSAGE!

If your concern lies with your mouth being covered, don’t leave home without a mask that clearly makes a statement as you run those necessary errands. Though a mask isn’t a muzzle, even while your mug is partly covered, offering a friendly non-verbal expression is key to communicating, even when your lips can’t be seen moving. 

With the pandemic drawing on and on, you must be having a hard time teaching remotely from your home, if managing a room full of kids isn’t hard enough! But after all, we’re tough enough to overpass it, because “teachers can do virtually anything!”

Let’s face it, when words escape you, an effortless black and white message draped over your face can easily be pointed out with a quick motion to your memo. Daily reminders are punctuated by a bold message that can be simple, to the point, and with some sparkle.

Teaching is nothing short of a blessing and I strongly believe we should all feel lucky and blessed the Lord gave us that opportunity, that great honor to be teachers! And with YOU, that make our work is such an amazing and worthwhile profession!

If you really wish to adapt to the current circumstances, it is a good idea to think of the mask as an accessory rather than a commodity. You look good, you feel good, and you’re helping mankind be a better place. Everyone wins!
