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.
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!
Perfect Resource for art teachers
Cassie is such an inspiration as I go on my art teacher’in journey. She has so many practical tips and ideas on teaching art. I love how cheerful and positive she always is. Teaching art to hundreds (or thousands in my situation) of students is not an easy job so it’s so helpful to have the support of other art teachers willing to share what works for them!
