I am an art teacher with the Fairfield Community Schools teaching grades K through 5. I enjoy working with the children and helping them learn to use the creative side of their brain. I hope you enjoy my blog and seeing a bit of what we work on in the art classes.

Back to School!

As summer winds down, and we see the back to school ads arrive, I am reminded of times my own kids and I went shopping for the items on the list from the school: things like pencils, notebooks, paintset for art class (and we say Prang or Crayola brand because those have actual pigment and will actually paint colors). I have been reflecting also about the other school supplies I hope we will bring: a positive attitude, enough rest to be able to learn, hope and faith that we can find a good path ahead together, and most of all, kindness. If we have those things, the rest will follow. Have a great start to the school year!
