They contacted me about a spot light on a local teacher. Their blog site is located here. Take a look....
I became a teacher because it was the right thing for me to do for my personality. I love learning and I love seeing/helping other people learn. Being a teacher allows me to be a student for life. Teaching is also one of the “helping" professions that are vital to the success of any society. I want to be part of the solution to our society's ills, and teaching allows me to do that daily.
Developing personal and intentional relationships with kids (and their families like you, the Ausleys) and watching them grow up. The best is the look on kids' faces when they understand something they didn't understand before art class. Like how to make a clay pinch pot or blow a glass bead.
2. Acknowledge and embrace the imperfections
3. View challenges as opportunities
Value the process over the end result. Try different learning tactics as there is no one-size fits all model for learning / teaching. What works for one person may not work for another. Cultivate your “grit”. I believe students and teachers with “grit” have more success in all that they do. Don’t be afraid to ask for help!
I know I did. I am connected online with over 20,000 art teachers. One group was just formed during this pandemic. It is called Online Art Teachers (K-12). This group is amazing at sharing ideas that have worked for them. So, reach out and connect. I think the Beatles said it best…We get by with a little help from our friends.
"Everything is Figureoutable” by Marie Forleo So, yep, in a nutshell that is my new word for life and in my classroom because Everything is “Figureoutable”
MAGICALLY-DELICIOUS creative journey and I want to enjoy what ever adventure comes my way with my family and friends.
One might ask how I know Kelly. Well, I was her kids art teacher! Our kids became friends and so did our families. Here is a small glimpse in the past below. As both of us now how college aged kids! From Guatemala to Dog Island...lots of memories and laughter! And, we do have the photos to prove it!
Well, you know we always close the blog with a song...I don't know why. It is just what we do. I immediately thought about this song. I loved the BoDeans when we were in college at UGA. We recently saw them again in Atlanta at The City Winery. It was a blast. I know Kelly and she is a fan of Jimmy Buffet type music...but I thought this was a hoot for this post! You see, let them help find you some new "fits" down at Rebels' and you will definitely feel ULTIMATELY FINE....See what I did there =) Shop Local and visit these cool cats!
