As an educator, I want to provide an environment in which students can learn, live and grow. Art within a curriculum serves so many wonderful purposes. If art is implemented successfully throughout an educational career, it can have a significant positive impact on students. Art acts as a form of communication and it also provides an outlet for self-expression. Art enhances our cultural literacy, and helps to develop observation and analysis skills. Art allows us to think creatively, ‘outside of the box’.
An effective teacher is someone who puts his or her whole-self into the teaching of their students. I am willing to learn, adapt and be flexible in my teaching, caring not only for the cognitive development of the child, but also for the child’s social and personal development, I have a passion for the field of art and the education of youth . Organization and management within a classroom are strengths that I possess.
Within the field of education I see a great opportunity to continue the ongoing process of introducing fresh young minds to the exciting world of color, form, shape and style.
