a lot of the time, especially at the elementary level, art teachers are the only teachers in the building who do what they do and for years i’ve looked to the internet and the kindness of more experienced, organized, professionals to help me navigate the visual art seas.

the blogs of other art teachers have helped me tremendously over the years and i feel compelled to add to the digital collective by sharing my own ideas, anecdotes, failures and successes.

going on my 8th year as a visual arts educator, i’ve taught in the united states, qatar and am currently teaching at an international american school in china.
