I have taken on a big change in my professional life and am now the Art teacher art North High School in North Minneapolis. I have taught for the past five years at Anwatin Middle School and have always wanted to teach at the high school level, so this change holds a lot of promise for me. Moving to a new school, however, is like becoming a new teacher all over again. Many of the lessons and strategies that worked for the middle school level don't apply quite as well at the upper levels.
Right now I'm teaching a beginning level general Art class, Drawing 1, and AP Art. I'll keep this post brief, but I'll attach a few images of my student's work as well as a link to a local news station's coverage of our first big project - a series of murals.
