After 22 years of teaching Pre-K, I made the decision to switch to teaching part-time this year. This meant that this summer I not only had to move out of my (cluttered, over-stuffed) classroom, but I had no classroom of my own to move into! I had to go through the difficult process of purging all of my carefully saved odds and ends that I had been keeping for some future project. Then I found out that our city's Children's Museum welcomes donations of the very kinds of potential art materials that I had! I'm happy to know that much of my "trash" will become "treasure" that will inspire young museum visitors to create wonderful things!
