I got a job!

I just wanted to share the good news that I have been hired on in Davidson county! I have been working very hard as a substitute teacher this past school year. The job hunt was tough, but I am so fortunate to have been hired on at my top choice school!

I will be teaching K-4 at Hickman Elementary. I have my own art room with 2 sinks, shared storage and 2 kilns with the second art teacher at the school. I am very excited to start my career, its a great school! The principal is very nice and values the arts and I am so pleased there is already a second established art teacher that can deal with all my first year teacher questions :)

It was my very first interview with a principal and I beat out 4 other candidates! The principal was very impressed with my rich portfolio, that I couldn't have put together without the wonderful help and guidance of Mrs. Snead. Thank you so much for taking sooooo many pictures of me in action and helping me create such awesome lesson plans! Mrs. Snead is the most talented art teacher I know and I am so glad to have worked under her wing because I feel confident in tackling my first year! I start August 9th :)

Thank you ladies! I most certainly will! I would love to create a blog and post pictures of projects. Next week, I think I can get into the classroom and maybe take some pictures of the room for you to see!
