This week I had my art room at school open for an art display for parents to come in and have a look. It was a fabulous success and all of the children had the opportunity to bring in their mum and dad to show them their work.
I had framed artworks, hung them from strings, displayed them in groups and had a few bigger displays throughout the school. Everyone was most impressed with how the art room looked. As I chatted to both the children and their parents the thing that really became very obvious was how proud the kids were of their efforts. And of course that made me feel very proud of the work they had done and gave me such an enormous feeling of self-satisfaction. What more can you ask for in your job, but to be satisfied and love going there. Which I do.
I love going to school every week and am very thankful to have been presented with the opportunity to teach art this year. I love it, the kids love it and even more than an awesome display here and there, it is loved by everyone in the school. And that’s a good feeling.
