A little about Me
I consider myself a dreamer, but one that also has her feet planted firmly on the ground. I often find myself reflecting on my teaching practices and dreaming of new lessons and possibilities for students to explore. I am very excited to be sharing my thoughts and reflections in the field of art education with you. I hope that whatever I decide to share here will be helpful or inspiring to other artist educators, if not also entertaining.
As I look around at the world of education, I see moments and practices that could benefit from some reflection. I have been told that I am a natural reflective practioner so this comes somewhat easily to me. As I contemplate the state of education, and apply it through my lens and practice of art education, I see things (some little, some big) that give me feelings of dissatisfaction -- of discontent. But the fact that I also approach them with the mindset that things can change, that we each can grow and make a difference, meets this discontent with a hopeful optimism. I look for the helpers that help dreams take flight.
Will you dream with me ?
