The Baltimore Teachers Union brought a kindergarten teacher to tears Wednesday, surprising her and her 26 students with an extreme makeover of her dilapidated classroom. Abby Haven, a teacher for the past two years at James Mosher Elementary School, was chosen from a pool of 20 teachers who applied to the union and its parent organization, the American Federation of Teachers, for the prize. The program has been in other districts around the country for more than five years, and it's the second time a city school has won. Haven submitted an essay to the union earlier this year, expressing her hope to replace the stained carpet that could trigger her students' allergies and asthma, and to provide her students with shelving so that they could be better organized.

Eleanor Saulsbury's entry into teaching did not bode well for a long, successful career. When she graduated from what is now Coppin State University in 1968, she had asked to be placed at Norwood Elementary in Baltimore County because it was close to her family's home in Edgemere. She was naive, she said, not to think that the fact that she was an African-American might be an issue in an all-white school during a year when riots had left blocks in Baltimore burned and looted. Right away, a parent demanded that her child be taken out of Saulsbury's classroom.

At Germantown Elementary School in Annapolis, students receive physical education once a week. Officially, that is. Unofficially, students are engaging in the same level of activity as their "go-outside-and-play" parents of previous generations. At recess, before classes and after school — and in some cases even during classroom instruction — youngsters are getting workouts by playing traditional games, learning new ones and creating their own spinoff versions. Germantown Elementary is among the first schools in the area to implement a San Diego-based physical education program called SPARK, which stresses to children the importance of physical fitness, then provides grade-level equipment and instruction to back it up. SPARK officials said the program began in 1989 as a result of a study supported by the Heart, Lung and Blood Institute of the National Institutes of Health and San Diego State University.

Describing herself as a community artist who makes art for social justice seems fitting for 29-year-old Ashley Minner, who not only works in various mediums but also consults, writes grants, teaches, speaks and serves on boards for several arts organizations and projects. This stems from her growing up in the Lumbee Native American community, where Minner said she learned to "help out and give back whenever possible. " One way she does this is by facilitating an after-school art program for Native American girls.
