Linda in Michigan responded to the art ed student who "loathes the fact" that
she is already juggling time for her art with time learning how to be an art
ed. student with the most wonderful quote! I felt the same way when I read
the post. If "loathing" that juggling is occurring now, just wait until the
"juggling" of life and teaching hits you! And I am speaking as an
Artist...got my BFA in Graphic Design/Illustration, worked for some years and
freelanced from home while popping out my three wonderful children, and NOW I
am teaching art. I love it, and find so many outlets for my "art" and
creative expression in the classroom and school. In my opinion, this student
should consider becoming a professional artist and get her degree in that
field now. Teaching may or may not come later for her. Follow your heart.
