i am a self-defined Nuyorican creative (that is a Puerto Rican who is from both the isles of Manhattan, NYC and the Caribbean). I share daily in the joy of education and live in a cute port town in New York, in a 'teensy-weensy' apartment with my two dogs and canary named Valentino.

what a mess...the plight of the art teacher

a panoramic shot of my daily office view ;(

Yes, its that blessed time of year when all the classes are getting wrapped up in rubber-bands, and paper-purple portfolios and all thats left is cleaning, cleaning, cleaning, sorting, counting, collecting, grading, inventor-ing and ordering art supplies - and oh did I mention cleaning? If only the creative mind could organize habitually - but when working with so many during such a limited amount of time it isn't always possible. I wish one of those home organization television spots would show up at my school and snap their fingers...

Haha, brutal. My bedroom is starting to make a recovery from rivaling the current state of your desk.

The panoramic shot makes it look like desk is bending under the weight of the stacks. My art desk's got nothing on that.

Do you have to put that all away each summer? That is a massive amount of work, but at least now you get an uninterrupted vacation to look forward to. We just completed our graduation and recognition ceremony's, and have a summer of back end processing and lay offs to look forward to.

man, oh man...but the messiness is definitely a sign of brilliance and the creative juices flowing,...at least I hope that is creative juice flowing under there,...if not you might want to get some chlorox!
