Q: I am currently a student teacher. Can I do this course?

A: Of course! This is a great time to get a head start on planning for success and preparing for your first year of teaching. By the time you're done this course, you will have a lot of resources all ready to use in your classroom.

Q: I'm a first year art teacher. Is this course for me?

A: Absolutely! This will answer most of your burning questions and solve a lot of our problems. This course is created for new art teachers.

Q: What if I'm not a first year teacher but am still a New Teacher. Should I take this course?

A: I would for sure. This is relevant information to anyone who is a new teacher. In teaching, you are considered a new teacher for a while because there is so much to learn. Teaching takes a lot of experience in the classroom.

Q: Do I have to complete the course in a specified amount of time.

A: Nope! It is a PDF so you can print it off and work on it at your own pace. Or keep it digital and print off the interactive pages as you need them. This is flexible and you can do it when you have time. The Facebook Group will be active always so if you only have a few min at bed time, pop on in and say hi and get inspired.

Q: I'm concerned about the cost. Will it really be worth it?

A: I have spent a lot of time creating this course and have added a lot of content to reflect the current ideas and philosophies in teaching such as Growth Mindset and Mindfulness. This is a 21st century art teaching course and I would do everything stated in this course myself. I am giving advice to get you started on the right foot and to help you plan a lot of resources to use in your classroom. As well, I provide a lot of printables to save you time and get you started. Because you are focusing your journey in teaching and knowing WHAT to do, you won't waste time wandering without direction, hoping Pinterest will give you an answer. And you will always have my support in the Facebook Group at any time. I will answer your questions!

Q: What if things change in education and this is no longer relevant?

A: Things change in education. They always do! If things change significantly, I will most likely update this course.
