A reflective time to escape and release.
The lifestyle of a teacher is often extremely busy, hectic, and rewarding.
Teachers give to students.
Teachers give to schools.
Teachers give to families.
Teachers give to communities.
But what about the teacher inside?
What about their own inner space?
What about their own works?
Finding time to escape.
Here on display are DPS teachers who found time, to go inward expressing and creating their own inner space, creating their own personal works.
A time to reflect.
A time to escape.
A time to release thoughts and feelings, reflections of life. These artworks reflect teachers’ time within their own inner space. -Tanneh El-Amin Nyanfore
