Hi everyone! How is the end of year craziness going for you? Between all the cleaning, doing inventory, saying good byes and packing up your art room, don’t forget to stop and look back at all the amazing projects and inspiring lessons you taught this past school year. Give yourself a huge pat on the shoulder for all those wonderful art displays, art shows, and artistic flavor you gave to make your school a wonderful place. You are awesome –do you know that?
I wil do a little bit of celebrating myself for two reasons:
1. I have accepted a job to be an elementary principal in a gorgeous school in China! Totally unexpected but I strongly believe things happen for a reason and we attract everything into our lives. There is a reason I should be doing this now so I embrace it completely. Am I nervous? Absolutely! Excited? Of course!
2. My second reason to celebrate is that my little ‘ol blog here has been nominated for a Fascination Award. More specifically, the nomination comes thanks to the post I wrote : ‘Paper Mache Greek Vases in grade Seven‘ which apparently has created a lot of discussion, comments and views. I am so a excited and honored because even though that was a long project to do, it has to be one of my favorite lessons because it was a collaboration with the social studies teacher and helped my students connect art with another subject.
