Professional development

My Students

Our middle school is located in a rural area. My students come from diverse backgrounds and some face struggles that no child should have to endure. Art gives them a chance to escape that worry and stress and focus on their projects.

My students love hands-on projects that make them feel successful.

They are creative, inquisitive, and full of energy. I have exceptionally talented kids that make me laugh every day and make coming to work a joy. I want them to have every opportunity to succeed, and having better equipment and supplies in the art room will help them accomplish their goals.

My Project

The Art of Education platform offers both Flex curriculum and Pro Learning packs to help art teachers provide the best possible education to their students.

Flex curriculum gives art teachers high quality lesson plans that are aligned with state standards.

They also cover cross curriculum material that can help students learn material that they are studying in other subjects. These lessons focus on giving students a voice in their artwork and teach them how to portray themselves in their art. The units on storytelling and autobiography would be especially helpful to my students.

Pro learning packs include videos, handouts, charts and more for teachers to use in the classroom. These packs range anywhere from needle felting and graphic design to remote learning and art on a cart. My students would benefit from these lessons as well as lessons on oil pastels and collage.

Covid-19 has pushed teachers to learn new ways of teaching and these two resources would be implemented to learn better ways of providing the best possible education for my students.
