Shirts as cool as the kids wearing them


At Heritage Oak Elementary School, the cool cats are on the prowl. This adorable t-shirt design is the perfect match for the spunky, adventurous kindergarten class taught by my wife, Nadia McCarron.

Nadia McCarron’s kindergarten class is made up of the coolest cats in town. Nadia’s love for her students can be felt from the moment they walk through the door until the final bell rings. Located in Roseville, California, the Cool Cats is a group of kindergarten age kiddos who are just getting started in their educational journey. And I can’t think of a better starting point! This group of kids support each other every step of the way, no matter what, a quality that can be attributed to great leadership and teaching.

Nadia was nominated for the Lifechanger of the Year award by her colleague, Susan Chase. Nadia received an outpouring of support after this nomination, and everyone from fellow teachers to principals and family friends joined in by voting for her. Ms. McCarron grew up in South Africa, so she relates well with students who are in the process of learning a second language. Her nomination includes such praise as stating that she has a “heart of gold,” and that “her students are lucky to have her as their first elementary school teacher.” By simply speaking to Nadia, you will learn that she absolutely loves each one of her students and that she strives to build a foundation for them to succeed.

When I was asked to design a t-shirt for this kindergarten class, I knew I had to create something that was as cool as these kids. The kiddos totally love the dark red color and jazzy cat design, and I am thrilled to see the students wearing their shirts inside the classroom and out on the playground. Stay cool, Cool Cats!
