Major 2020 Update

Where has time gone? It’s been months and I’ve failed to update my website’s blog in forever, but as you might imagine — there’s a lot going on. And that was BEFORE the shelter in place hit Boston (and the rest of the world). In as few words as possible, here’s what I’ve been doing —

  1. I found myself outside the art room and teaching fifth grade more often that not. If gave me the confidence to start teaching subjects beside the fine arts. I applied and was accepted as a graduate student for a Master of Education (Elementary). It’s been a lot of work and very different than getting a grad degree in my twenties. I am learning a lot.
  2. Because everything shut down (except for supermarkets, hospitals, and schools) my team and I are teaching from home. I’ve been trying to incorporate arts integrated projects to support lessons my colleagues are sharing. I’m positing (slightly tweaked) week’s worth of lessons here until I fully update this site.
  3. I had a fun project concerning a forgotten super hero from the 80’s, but it’s been postponed indefinitely now that most publishers have suspended all activity for the foreseeable future. Here’s a tease of a work in progress.

A long coming update

It’s been over a year since I last updated my website blog. Where does time go? Since I last posted I lost my dog of sixteen years and a cat of twelve. I started teaching at a new school, continued to administer at another for the summer, and I submitted a few pieces for a top secret project that should be revealed later this year. I can’t share much, but presented here is an unused page of the project. Though these characters were abandoned, I found a fun way to incorporate them into something else. I finally reworked this website to include more examples of students’ work as well as some more of my own. I need to make time in the future to have my artwork professionally photographed. Sending lots of love to the Cyberverse as I wrap up another school year and prepare for a jam packed summer.
