Re: To those of you movin' to HS

    You'll love teaching HS art because the high level of art the kids are
capable of will surprise you. HS is an extremely creative time for most kids,
they really need to express themselves: ideas, feelings, thoughts, and art is
an excellent outlet for them. You will find it challenging, especially being
a new teacher at the school. HS kids are real good at testing you and
challenging you on things. But, you'll find that overall they really want to
work with you and have success (don't we all). Yes, even though there's
always kids in the class who "don't like art" or who claim they can't and
never will be able to draw, for the most part, kids like coming to art class.
You build your program and they will come. Best of luck to all ya'll new HS
art teachers.
