This year has been a year of a lot of firsts for me. So in the spirit of getting my feet wet, I have decided to jump into the world of blogging. I am an art teacher, busy mother to twin girls, wife to my handy (and sometimes remodel happy) wonderful husband and (if I have the energy) crafter and artist.
This is my first year working full time in a public school. I have taught art before and worked as a 4K teacher for two years, so when I accepted my dream job of teaching art full time I didn't think about just how soaking wet all over my experience would leave me. What I mean is, I knew it would be a year of firsts. A year of new lessons to come up with, new students, new co-workers, etc... but what I didn't realize is how much learning I was going to be doing!
Every moment, every day is a new learning experience! I learn what works and what doesn't work on a daily basis. And as I am working on my professional development plan and in my year of reflecting- I am hoping to record some of these wonderful learning experiences here. And maybe they will help other new art teachers along the way.
