Passion for the Arts

Passion Quilt Meme Rules: Think about what you are passionate about teaching your students.
Post a picture from a source like FlickrCC or Flickr Creative Commons or make/take your own that captures what YOU are most passionate about for kids to learn about…and give your picture a short title.
Title your blog post “Meme: Passion Quilt” and link back to this blog entry.
Include links to 5 folks in your professional learning network or whom you follow on Twitter/Pownce
There are so many things in even the top five of what I would like to "give" to my students. The one that comes to mind first is to give my students a love for expressing themselves through the arts. The arts provided such a powerful outlet for me in my early years, without which, my life would absolutely have taken another path. My life would have been so less rich.
Okay, I'm supposed to "tag" five other teachers. All the teacher blogger friends who are similar to my experience have already been tagged. So I'll go to the two teacher bloggers left who I know. One is an "unschooler" Mom and one is in higher ed. Diane http://mackvilleroad.blogspot.com/ and Sara http://doubleelephant.blogspot.com/.
