Love your podcast! Would love to join in on the conversation as Miss Iowa 2019 with my arts education initiative Americans for the Arts: Advocate, Educate, Invest
Can’t Get Enough....
I look forward to each week for the latest podcast! AE has put together a phenomenal resource with all that is offered. I joined about a year ago and continue to find more nuggets for my classroom. You make teaching a pleasure. Thank you for your drive to put this resource out there for art teachers.
Helpful, but here are some tips
I’ve listened from episode 1 to 32 so far and I’m really enjoying them. I’ve been inspired by much of what I’ve heard. The one issue I have is that they are pretty young and appear to lack some life experiences. Life happens. Sometimes, “negativity” is unavoidable if a teacher is struggling with heavy issues at home or if the workplace itself is negative. Teachers are not martyrs and shouldn’t be shamed for not being full of joy through the grieving process or through a hostile work environment. I think it’s okay to look forward to retirement-it doesn’t mean you hate your job, it just means you look forward to spending more time with your family or crating art or traveling, etc. This is not to say that these guys shame anyone; they do not, but they do sound just a bit too judgmental and lean a bit towards the “teachers are martyrs” and “we didn’t sign up for teaching to get rich”. They aren’t bad, but these are just my sore spots and they are guilty of going there. Also, if an artwork isn’t good, using the word “dog” is a poor analogy in my opinion. These are just small annoyances. Otherwise, I enjoy this podcast and will continue to finish all of them! I do find much of the content helpful!
