Happy Holidays from My Whitney Family

Where the Dean of Discipline spends 3 hours stitching on his ugly Xmas sweater
that lights up and has dingle balls on the cuffs...

where the students are family because they spend 6 years together,
 and showing love and kindness to one another...

where the seniors put up their own Xmas tree,
and put out a table so that all can make their own ornaments to hang on the tree...

where a favorite student and her mother will fight with the counselors and figure out how she can take 6 years of art with me...

where 30 7th graders will jump up at a moments notice,
and quickly arrange themselves so that they can wish me a Merry Christmas
and have their picture on the blog...

and where 3 more favorite students will take the time to pose and clown around with one of their favorite teachers.
I love this place where I have spent the last 35 years of my life teaching
these wonderfully bright young people art,
but more importantly,
life & social skills
and how to have fun learning,
and not to take life so seriously.

Happy Holidays,
 and thank you all for coming along for the ride this year.
