Teachers, donors, staff and other members of the RISE (Resources for Indispensable Schools and Educators) family at the "Giving Credit Where Credit is Due" celebration of teachers made small drawings or wrote about their vision of the ultimate effective classroom. These drawings and ideas were all collaged onto the canvas and incorporated into this painting of a fantasy classroom scene.
Some contributions were symbolic and others practical. People imagined laptops for students, an art station, a bio-garden, a teacher nap area, and of course, "lot's n' lot's of LOVE."
