I had two accepted
about a school-wide (K-8) mosaic project I did last year
Team Building with Buildings
an entire term on architecture I did with fifth grade
Now here's the REAL challenge-convincing my new administration to
grant me conference days so I can attend the convention. I'll need
only two since the convention overlaps our spring school vacation.
But I was also appointed to the arts education advisory committee for
my state's dept. of education, and I needed a conference day to attend
a day long meeting (the rest are after school). I also applied for a
grant to take a target group on a museum field trip meaning the
district would have pay for coverage for the classes I have that day
who are not coming with me. I teach K-8, so there is a broad spread,
and art provides contractual planning time for teachers.
All that being said, I am not going to book the flight and hotel to
Minneapolis until I have the approved conference form in hand.
