Re: [art_education] Info for a prospective art teacher????
Very cool, Ian. Are going to the Savannah College of Art and Design? They have a very good reputation. Also, right now, I think that I work in the highest paid district in GA. Fulton County. Come up here and do some student teaching! It's a long way from Savannah, though. Personally, I think that teaching is very rewarding. I certainly have learned a lot myself by teaching students. I have also found countless sources of inspiration as I taught. The biggest drawback, I think, I getting overwhelmed. Just take it a step at a time. Try to find a way to, perhaps, work during the summer with a group of kids so that you get used to handling groups on a casual basis. Then when you start to teach, try not to teach too many different subjects your first year. Another thing, don't worry too much about all of that educational theory (Dewey and such). I don't think that there is one thing I learned in all of that theory the helped me to be a good teacher. Just really intend to BE a good teacher from the beginning and you will figure out what to do. Does that make sense? Good luck.
