Mrs. Cantrell is an 8th grade art teacher at Troy Junior High.
One of her major tasks is to provide an education to make her students into better people with art.
Mrs. Cantrell consults her colleagues and administrators to connect and understand her students.
Mrs. Cantrell adheres to state policy by following standards and giving a pre and post test to show student growth.
She believes that someone in her position needs to be able to communicate with other and have empathy. Also understanding the standards within their field of study and administrative roles and processes.
One of her greatest satisfactions as a teacher are the art shows she puts on with her students. Showcasing how art makes other people happy.
One change she could make about her job is making sure everybody who wants to take art can take it.
Adivce she gives to future teachers is to gain as much experience as you can. Supervise a club or volunteer to work with your people skills.
