1. What has been your one biggest struggle during this school year?
The biggest struggle this year has been finding time to participate is all the great art events in our district! Cobb wellness contests, Diversity show, Art from the Heart, Love Your Health contest, Bus Safety contest, Middle School Masters show, Junkyard Wars, Kiwanis showcase...
2. Share two accomplishments that you are proud of from this school year.
Working large! One of our STEM classrooms had a delivery of tables at the beginning of the year and I confiscated the boxes they came in. At first the boxes were used as individual traveling galleries placed around the school. They ended up being used as the base of a recycled material mixed media portrait.
Use of technology! I used QR codes for our schools art show this year and I designed this nifty site. I have also discovered the Osmo (which has the AMAZING Masterpiece app).
3. What are three things you wish to accomplish before the end of the school year?
I want my 8th Grade classes to have a pop up art show within the next few weeks and invite their academic teachers.
We need to finish our collaborative coloring book in 8th grade and send it to local schools and hospitals.
I need to organize a contest for this years 7th graders to design the 8th grade shirt for next year.
4. Give four reasons why you remain in education in today's rough culture:
I continuously learn about myself and the world each day.
I have a belief that children can change the world and I want to be part of that.
I love working with quirky kids.
Art is so important to me that I want to seed it in the hearts of others and help it take root.
