Dear Grade 5,
These will be your last projects as a cohort, but will hopefully inspire years of creativity in the future. Your commitment to completing these artworks to the best of your ability was easy to see. Many of you chose to create with materials you loved or with a subject matter in mind that was close to your heart. Those projects ran themselves. You have demonstrated that student choice drives learning.
All the best as you head into your PYP Exhibition! I cannot wait to see what you come up with over the next few weeks!
With a career spanning 25 years, I have worked alongside children from infancy to 9th grade in a generalist classroom setting. To my delight and surprise, an opportunity arose for me to become an art teacher in 2015. My first year was a learning experience and I expect that will be the case with all the years to follow.
