In a previous life, I was an Artist-in-Residence and understand the
value that they can be in the classroom. Now, as a teacher, I try to
recapture the attention that I commanded with students in a residency
setting. It is more difficult--Teachers are viewed as different animals. I
do believe, however, that the art teacher should be active in the studio
and the classroom with his/her own work, however difficult this may prove
to be. Students need to witness the dedication and the struggle.
