I’ve been teaching high school art since 2000. I took a couple of years off and went to SCAD and earned an MFA in Painting. I really thought I was going back to the classroom “for a year” to figure out life and finances after grad-school. This Fall I will be starting my 7th year at Salinas High School and 17th year teaching. Needless to say I truly love my job.
A few years ago Salinas High School District offered 1:1 chromebooks for our students. At first I really didn’t know how this technology would be an asset to the art room, but I was eager to figure it out. It’s put the spark back into creating lessons and totally changed the way I teach.
I am pleased to share with you what is working for me and my students. If you have any questions please feel free to ask. I love knowing I am not only teaching my students, but being able to share and collaborate with teachers around the world.
