Dear, lovely, creative innovators,
This is a shared letter to all of you. It is shared because each one of you is so very unique in your process. Weird, right? Before, we co-created projects for the grade level based on a central or big idea. Now your interests drive your expression. I have challenged and changed my philosophy (the believing) and practice (the doing) over the four and growing years as your Visual Arts teacher. My new understanding allows me to give you full ownership. Together we face the challenge of documenting your process, making sure we celebrate, capture, and acknowledge your story. Due to the specialized nature of each project, your grade level’s gallery will be added to on a regular basis. So far, we have finished a few projects with many more on the way. In addition to this and process posts on your Seesaw accounts, pop-up galleries throughout the year will be another way for you to share your learning with our community.
Let’s see how this new plan goes!
Your Visual Arts Teacher,
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.
