I agreed to take a student teacher this year for the first time. I'm
hooked. Yes, it's hard not to jump in and "fix" things, but this has been
a wonderful learning experience for me! What a high it is to watch this
young person become stronger and more confident every day. She is doing
an outstanding job. Most middle school kids are tough, and ours are
no exception. I know this situation was overwhelming at first.
I am impressed. If my student teacher is any indication of the caliber
of new art educators, the future of art looks very bright indeed.
