Your peers swoon over your color-coded art lesson filing system and perfectly arranged art gallery. Your management chops are legendary among your art teacher friends but you don’t know what the fuss is about. I mean, can’t everyone corral 30 kinders to color a Kandinsky circle? Admins love your ability to apply standards to every lesson and to keep all children on task.
Your creative genius adds sparkle to your unique art program. Going above and beyond doesn’t feel like extra work to you; it’s essential to your happiness! You love experimenting with new techniques and media and can’t wait to see how the kids respond to your efforts. You prefer to do things your way and why not? It works!
You’ve been called the quintessential art teacher because of your quirky call-and-response queues, animated teaching style and hard-to-forget fashion ensembles. Your art ed degree prepared you for your strong knowledge of art techniques and art history and you can’t wait to share your knowledge with your students.
As a former artist, you have serious skills and knowledge of how art is created. You know the joy art can bring and lucky for your students, you get to show them all that you have learned. You believe in process over product and strive to give each child a complete education on the proper way to use tools, materials and techniques.
