In With The New!
Classrooms are again filled with students and teachers exploring new frontiers together. Some routines remain the same but many have been altered by our 'new normal' to ensure the health of teachers, students, and administrators.

Partners is adapting to these new considerations, including classroom needs, field trip arrangements, and in-person instruction. Even with a changing landscape, we're committed to providing essential services to community educators and celebrating their work. Read on for a few examples of how we're accomplishing this.
Congratulations Teachers!
From African drumming to preschool mechanics to Model United Nations, teachers from across the district have prepared exciting learning experiences for their students.

And for 33 years, Partners has supported those experiences with Teacher Grants of up to $1,000. This school year, our competitive grants program has awarded more than $14,000 to 16 Santa Fe teachers.

What Else Do We Do?

Partners in Education has been supporting teachers in our public schools for 33 years. That's all we do. We invite you to read on to see how our programs help teachers to make a difference in the community. Your donation can be directed to a specific program or to Partners in Education in general.

Have you ever seen a big yellow school bus outside the Lensic or a museum? Each year, donors like you provide the funding for buses for nearly 600 public school classes to go on transformative educational adventures.
The Teacher Warehouse is a resource for teachers to “shop” for free and take great things back to their classrooms. Local businesses and individuals donate office supplies, art supplies, books, and more.

Due to the pandemic, The Teacher Warehouse is currently open Tuesdays and Wednesdays, 3:30 - 5pm, or by appointment. To schedule a time, contact Shelley Cohen at 505.474.0240.

ArtWorks is an aesthetic education program that builds critical thinking skills and frees young imaginations. ArtWorks makes the arts personally meaningful to over 1,800 public school students and teachers through an integrated program of art-making, viewing live performances and exhibits, and achieving understanding through inquiry and reflection.
Through the generosity of donors like you, classroom teachers receive grants for innovative, curriculum-based projects. Partners in Education awards over $50,000 to about 60 teachers each year.  

Partners in Education also honors up to seven Santa Fe Public School teachers each year with the Teachers Who Inspire awards. 
The Partners in Education Foundation for the Santa Fe Public Schools seeks to marshal resources and create alliances to foster excellence in Santa Fe's public schools.

The mission of ArtWorks is to make the arts personally meaningful to children and elementary school teachers through an integrated program of art-making, viewing virtual or live performances and exhibits, and achieving understanding through inquiry and reflection.
