I digress. The future holds some interesting changes for next year. My team and I will be beginning a new course for 2D foundations in the fall. This will require rewriting the current curriculum to encompass two beginning courses into one functional course, with proper vertical alignment. I will also be teaching metals next spring, super excited for this transition. It may lead to a full time position of which I am still on the fence about. I know if it comes up I will take it, but I cannot help but to feel the loss. Currently, I am in a position to be the best art teacher I can be, by remaining active in the community of artists, volunteering time, and working in my studio keeping up my practice while learning more everyday. We will see where this goes. I want the best for my students, and my school.
This is my first year, it has been a challenge in some places and just plain fun in others. I am excited at the opportunities in the future as well as my everyday with the kids.
