RE: [art_education] starting a new year
Hey Jeryl! Happy first day of school! Today was meet the teacher and our kiddoes start Friday. I think it is my 17th year but I’m not sure!
Got my notification today that I too will have the honor of teaching a seminar at NAEA. Can’t wait to see you and to make new friends with all of you
new teachers out there! Speak up and introduce yourselves-we’d love to get to know you.
My initiative is to put the 8 Habits of the Artist onto my wall giant size. I am spray painting giant letters in the garage right now.
Survived my first day of school ( again- 28 years and counting) My school is
transitioning to a school of creativity and innovation so it should be a
challenging year as we re-invent ourselves. I got my notification of acceptance
at the NAEA conference and Amy from Tn ( she thinks she has an email issue
because she hasn't been getting any digests) also is doing two presentations so
we have already BOOKED a room. That is crazy for us since we usually wait until
the last minute. Have a great opening to the new year-- check out the video
from OK GO called Primary Colors. It is a great movement video for little ones.
I let my students dance to it like it was a dance revolution game. Fun!
