Here is the second page of my journal on last week's theme. The bottom photo of my "art posse" got cut off because my journal is a little larger than my scanner bed. I posted this photo in an earlier post- if you want to see it you can click on the words- lost photo!
I have a degree in Child Development and have been teaching for 25 years. Most of these years have been spent with second graders with the exception of 4 years in first grade. I love introducing my students to the joy of reading "chapter books" and the language of literature.
I am a mixed-media artist and am lucky to be teaching at a fine arts magnet school. I use music and visual art every day in my classroom.
I have been married for 29 years and my husband teaches High School English. I have raised 4 wonderful kids and am still working on the yellow labs that live in our house.
