Fairfield High School drama teacher, Elizabeth Choy, thought it would be interesting and cool to learn how to make puppets.
Using videos on YouTube and modeling her creations from images on social media, she created her first two puppets. Naming them after herself and her husband, she brought them into her classroom.
While she was building her first puppet in class five years ago, Choy noticed that one of her students who was autistic picked up one of the puppets and began to open and close the mouth and play with them.
