Listening, thinking and posting in this group helps develop the
"glue" that enables us teachers to solidify our own art philosophies. We
are the experienced leaders of our generation and we need to formulate and
try to implement what we feel is important for children to experience and
know so that they may pass this on to future generations. We don't have to
agree with everyone, but each thought and contribution to this list helps
each one of us think and hold on to or change our methods. Remember
children will our leaders tomorrow.
I, too, am grateful we are here for each other. We, as teachers,
need to think of our students and ourselves as one body. We are always
learning and changing by interacting with each other.
Please keep the good thoughts coming.
