February 14-21 is #LoveTeaching Week, and we love our teaching artists!
Teachers are where the pedal of arts education meets the metal of the classroom. Thank you to everyone who inspires, motivates, and cares for kids in the classroom. Author John Steinbeck wrote:
“I have come to believe that a great teacher is a great artist and that there are as few as there are any other great artists. It might even be the greatest of the arts since the medium is the human mind and spirit.”
Teaching is not an easy job, whether it’s eight hours in a classroom, or 60 minutes after school. But it’s because of the dedication and love that our teaching artists put into their work that kids in the Bay Area have the opportunity to learn Piano, World Percussion, Modern Salsa Dance, and many more invaluable and fun skills.
So here’s to our teachers! Thank you for all your hard work!
