Hey Art Teach would ya mind?

Sure I'll help you out

Couldn't even tell you how many times I've been asked to help out with different props. I admit it, I love a challenge though!

Dali's Elephants

Students say the funniest things sometimes, they lighten the mood when it is much needed. This comment was well received by me today when I needed it most.

A student told me that Elephants don't stay gray, they get brown because they tan in the summer.

Ahhhh what comic relief.

I wish I could go into detail, but lets just say that there are devastating moments in teaching. I was brought to tears today and that has never before happened in my teaching career.

No it wasn't because of management.

No, it wasn't because of a flopped lesson.

It was because we play so many roles as teacher, and sometimes it includes being a 'mom'.

Angry birds sculpture

I need interesting projects for my fifth graders this year.  I need to pull all the stops out for projects I think they'll truly enjoy.

That's where Angry Birds comes into play.
