I still miss teaching. I can't pass up the back-to-school binds at the stores without reaching my hand in, even if I no longer need 100 dozen pencils, crayons, markers, glue, construction paper and an assortment of other craft items. I was given $300 for over 500 students so guess who paid to educate my children in art? I had a sweet deal with the custodian who gave me copier paper on the down-low. Otherwise, I would have been out of paper too. Once school got rolling and I ran out of my treasure of supplies that were cheaper in August, I was force to fill- in nearly every paycheck on more supplies.
Last Wednesday, the school buses started picking up students on my street. I actually like the sounds of buses stopping and going at each house- just not the smell of diesel. Okay, I am weird.
Do me a favor and ask if your art teacher needs anything.
Chances are they need a lot of things you would be able to provide.
