It is exciting to go back to school. Being a teacher, you get to rest and have a semi-retirement summer from the previous school year and just as you feel rested it is time to gear up for another exciting school year. I feel extremely fortunate because teaching art to children in grades K-5 is a treasure of a job. To see all of the young smiling faces just ready to jump right back into art brings me joy.
I have seen many excited students over the past few weeks out and about with their back to school shopping and getting ready with their own "bouquets of sharpened pencils" ready to attack each assignment.
I have so many new and exciting ideas and lessons to share and explore with my students in art as another fun and art inspiring school year begins. This year is especially exciting as I have a student teacher working with me until the end of October. She has already shared many great ideas with me and I know the students will enjoy her as much as I already do. In a way, she is a mini- me and appreciates an organized art room!
My classroom is neat and ready to be used and painted upon each and every day. So bring on the young artists and another fun year of art!
Be Well and Enjoy!
