The originator of our Art Education 2.0 Ning group , Craig Roland, is a university professor at the University of Florida and he writes a column for School Arts magazine. When he recently asked on Twitter for words of advice for first year art teachers, I sent a couple of tweets. I was tickled pink to see one of them included in School Arts magazine this month.
School_Marm. That's my Twitter name.
This is one of those "do as I say, not as I do" kinds of advice. Truth be known, I eat lunch in my classroom as I clean, grade, and prepare for the next bunch of kiddies. When I have actually followed this advice, I have benefitted from it, but being an introvert, I am happy puttering around in my room and in my own head.
