We have made it to July. In teacher mode, that means I only have one month left of break just about. You know... after spending so much time talking about schools cutting art jobs and myself getting cut from a past position I had for three years, I forgot to announce something big...
I HAVE A TEACHING JOB!
It is at a Catholic school, but only part time, which might be nice for a change. I have a great room and even a SMARTBoard again (I had worked so hard so fundraise for my last SMARTBoard and create my presentations and lessons, I am glad to have one again)!
I think over the last three weeks I have spend about 6 or 7 days j
ust taking everything out of shelves, seeing what is usable, and reorganizing. I had to rush the last day to get things put on shelves at least temporarily because July is cleaning month!
I took some pictures of what my classroom looked like when I first walked in (including everything from the teacher's lounge piled in on the tables). I have a customer and school parent to thank for letting me know about this job when she was chatting with me at the Broad Ripple Art Fair, so THANKS!
Photos are taken from the entryway (looking into the Kiln room across the hall, then panning left to right. There are tons of things that are not mine, but you can see what I first was working with! Where to start....
