To Sandy regarding portfolio for job interviews: I had a great art ed
prof who helped us get together a portfolio book. Every interview that
I brought this portfolio to got me the to the next level or I got the
job. They were always so impressed. Buy a photo album. Something with
a classy simple cover. In the front put your resume and credentials
file (letters of recomendations, transcripts, etc.). I separated my book
into grade levels: K-3, 4th - 6th, middle level, 9th - 12. In each
section I included a few lesson plans and photos of student works. At
the back I included a "personal" section with photo's of my own work.
A page of slides at the back. It is much easier than carrying a huge
porfolio of actual artwork samples. Administrators are always very
impressed. You can also pull sections out that might not apply to your
job interview, like K - 8 art work and lesson plans if you are applying
for a high school position. Good luck.
