Ilene Fox, a second-grade teacher at Lakeside School is keeping her late husband’s creative talents alive through classroom lessons.

Jodi Scavelli’s third-grade class at Chatterton participated in a Zoom lesson together recently with Fox’s, relating to Allan Fox’s book, “Doodles.”

Allan was a former human resources executive who recently retired to pursue his creative passions as a singer-songwriter, animator, doodler, and writer.

“We used his book and a YouTube video in which Allan explains the benefits he found in doodling such as increased concentration and stress relief,” explained Fox. “His doodles started as little messages and greetings to friends, but then became the platform for expressing more universal thoughts and ideas about kindness, peace, love, resilience and positive life decisions.”
