Beyond seeing the faces of fellow art teacher bloggers for the first time like CASSIE STEVENS, (who I think is just so cool and would love if she taught in my building) it was fun texting back and forth with some of my HVRSD art colleagues who were logged in as well.
I have a long list of presentations to watch today. So far I am the most impressed by Alecia Eggers' presentation on art room organization. Whoa, her art room is by far the most organized that I have ever seen.
I enjoyed seeing Cassie Stevens' presentation on multicultural annual themes and how she wears so many costumes to inspire her students.
It's snowing now (again) in New Jersey. The picturesque views from the windows in my home, the steam from my rose tea and the smell of sharpie in my notebook is awesome. A lot of the information is in my arsenal already but it feels great to pull buried/forgotten information out or make tweaks on a similar routine. I am looking forward to implementing some of my new found tips from this conference soon.
