Week 2!

I'm so excited about what my students have made this week. I was able to place a 'real' supply order this week compared to the past 5 years. I was ale to get everything from clay to looms. I just hope I don't run out of pencils!

Beginning the new year...

This first week, with 45 minute classes, we have covered rules, made warm up contour drawings, created a sketchbook as well as a portfolio. Students also filled out what "Art is" to them.

2013 Art Year

New school!!! It's great when you really enjoy what you're doing 2 years in a row. I miss people but I've met so many new friends that I feel life can't get any better at this moment. 

Going into my sixth year, it's been 6 years wow! To think, I almost quit my first middle school position because of gang fights and being completing unaware of urban settings/lifestyles. (I wish I would have kept my journals, but I just wanted to forget but looking made me a strong teacher. ) 

All the hard work and great people I've met along the way has made me appreciate the job I have this year. If you are having a rough year, hang in there because every experience will make you stronger if you stay positive.
