You’re not alone

This podcast (and all of the AOEU community and resources) are not only great for getting the creative juices flowing and bringing innovative ideas into the classroom, but it reminds you that you’re not alone. In a system that is more focused on politics and how it “looks on paper” - as it is in my state at least - the arts are usually an afterthought, which can leave you as the teacher feeling very discouraged and forgotten. This podcast, and the Art Ed Radio podcast remind you that you’re not alone and what you’re doing does make a difference.

Thank you!

I'm a stay at home mom turned art teacher for the first time this year. I graduated from college in 2002 and am a little nervous to start my first ever teaching job. I am so thankful for all your tips and tricks. You are so real and I appreciate that so much!

Best Teacher Ever!

I enjoy Cassie's YouTube channel A LOT. Podcast is not bad when I'm on the go. She's fantastic either way.
