Hello lovely art teachers all over the world!
I want to wish you all a wonderful new year filled with many adventures and amazing teaching. Enjoy the teaching moment, try not to stress out too much and remember that less is more sometimes.
I have been away a bit from blogging since moving to China. Getting onto social sites such as Facebook, Twitter and WordPress has been extremely challenging due to censorship laws. I have managed to find a way around this as do all the rest of expatriates living in this gorgeous country.
I love my new role as Principal and have been quite fortunate to have a great group of teachers to work with. What I love about my job is that I have the freedom and power to create an amazing school and although a work in progress, I know it will get there. I am truly being an artist here by moulding and creating my vision to reality!
Here is the great news. My school will need an elementary art teacher for next year. If you have ever wanted to teach overseas or already do so and want to move on, have experience with UbD, and the inquiry model plus Common Core, are extremely creative, a team player, positive, think outside the box, challenge your students to be magnificent inside and outside the classroom, love what you do and have a great heart, then I want to hear from you! Library experience would also be a bonus but not a must.
China is a wonderful country with so much to see and do. The city I live in is by the coast and very beautiful. My son and I love it here and feel very safe. The school has amazing facilities and staff is great. Situated between Shanghai and Beijing, travel opportunities abound.
