This is perhaps my favorite little painting I've put up this month. Do you ever feel like everything about the buraucracy of education is trying to suck the joy right out of teaching and learning? I feel that way almost every single day.
It just means we have to work harder to seek joy for ourselves and our students. We must be more cleaver in the ways we teach children to seek joy.
I'm hoping soon to get back to sharing some of what has been happening in my classroom this year. For now, I hope these other bits of art might lift your spirit and invite you to seek joy!
