What a great few days I've had here!! It's been amazing getting to meet and listen to other art teachers from around the country (and even a couple from Canada) talk about the subjects within art education that they are most passionate about!
It has reignited my excitement for what I do in my classroom and has really motivated me to become even more active in my profession.
It was also awesome getting to meet some of my blog readers! You guys are a huge part of the reason I keep writing! :)
This trip has also pushed me to really consider going back for my master's degree - something I initially put off because my son was so young and I didn't want to miss out on the early years with him. This fall however he will be entering kindergarten, so I'm beginning to feel like it might be the right time (though I likely wouldn't begin until the Fall of 2015).
So what's next?
I'm really hoping to present at next year's NAEA convention set for March 26-28 in New Orleans, Louisiana. So I will be putting together my proposal for that (hopefully with the wonderful Ms. K) over the next few weeks!
