Sometimes the lesson turns out better than you expected. Sometimes it happens to be the day of evaluations. Sometimes you actually witness an artistic awakening in the eyes of a child. Sometimes you get recognized with all of the “real” teachers. Sometimes you get recognized with all of the "real" artists. Sometimes someone thanks you for helping her with her bulletin board. Sometimes the teacher down the hall brings your scissors back. Sometimes you get a nice note from a parent. Sometimes you get an amazing note from a student. Sometimes it just says, “I love ART!” Sometimes that’s enough. If you’ve had a bummed day, don’t forget that good things happen too. Be the one who writes a happy note to a fellow teacher. Sometimes you can be a rainbow.
