As art teachers, we NEVER throw things away. For one, we can always use this for another project, cut it up and make something out of it, or put it in that pile of things we will sort through in the future. Unfortunately, that pile grows larger and larger year after year and the samples we said we'd use begin to collect dust and fade with time. Sigh. This year, I decided to pull my samples out of retirement and use them for a beginning of the year bulletin board:
and wall decor:
and hallway displays:
and yet, I still have piles more in the Art Room :( What do you do with your teacher samples?
