I just want to say hello. I'm a 4th grade classroom teacher in inner city
Detroit and teach my own art. Also I use art as a means to reach the kids in
all subject areas. I'm also involved with the Detroit Institute of Art's
"Art Discovery Program." That's the good thing about my school not having a
regular art teacher ----- i can teach my own art and be part of the D.I.A.
art program. On the down side not many teachers think art is important
enough to teach at all. The best part of all is I don't have to stop a
project because I have to go on to another class. I hear alot of you
complaining about that. I block all my classes now and it is great to be
able to go with something until we're finished.
I'm looking forward to being a member of ArtsEdNet. Mary
