I’ve had a tumblr education blog for years, but it was sort of becoming a place where I was mostly just reblogging other people’s ideas and not ever really writing or creating my own. I was sort of stuck. A weekend alone, and some quiet art and reflection has re-inspired me to start anew.
I’m in my third year of full time teaching, and although I deeply miss teaching art full time in a middle school, I’ve come to enjoy the freedom of having one class all day long. This year I’ve had a 5/6 class and it has been so joyous and exciting. We’ve created, we’ve drawn, we’ve built, and being able to spend more than one class period on something has made a world of difference.
My hopes for this new space will be to post images of my creations and my students’ creations as well. I’ll hopefully talk about my teaching practice and my growth, as well as my struggles (because boy are there lots of those). I’m off to bed now, but look forward to posting more in the near future.
