Here we go again! After going to the NAEA convention in Ft. Worth, I was inspired to try my hand at blogging again and this time hold nothing back.
I started this blog last fall with little confidence and knowledge. After hearing the art teacher "rock stars" at the National Art Education Association Convention, I decided that I can do this, too. Also, I met many teachers just like me. Teachers that want to learn from each other and create a PLN ( professional learning network) through social media. I have followed many blogs over the past two years and I admit it, they saved me when I started teaching art two years ago. I would have struggled and possibly failed without the ideas that I found at my fingertips each day through blogging, Facebook, Pinterest, and websites about teaching art. Now, it's my turn. I want to share what I do, where I struggle, where I succeed, and why I teach art to anyone who wants to listen. I'm a mess some days, but some days I am a masterpiece! I hope you find this blog useful at the least and inspiring at best. I am going to start by posting the lessons that I have taught this year. Whether it was a mess or a masterpiece, I am putting it out there!
I am also going to post my story on how I became an art teacher. It is a 20 year story in the making. I will save that for a later post.
Have a wonderful Saturday! Make it a masterpiece!
