Why I Love Helping Teachers...
Teachers are special people. Teachers sacrifice their time, finances, sweat, and tears for their students. With 12 years under my belt as an educator, I know how hard teachers work. Often, it's work that isn't recognized.
But this is what makes teachers special people. They don't teach for the money, the accolades, or recognition - they teach for their students. They teach because it's important. They teach because it matters. I've had the honor to work alongside some of the best people on the planet - teachers.
I am an artist, but teaching is my passion and purpose in life.
There are a lot of sites that claim to have good art lesson plans. Only a few actually offer good art lessons. Here is a recommended list of valuable resources for art lesson plans on the internet...
