I have been teaching grades 6-8 for my district's fine arts magnet school for the last 7 years! I have a degree in K-12 Visual Art Education with a minor in Art History. I have been lucky enough to travel both in and out of the United States and that has greatly influenced my teaching.
I believe the role of an art teacher is two fold. First you must encourage your students to think creatively, problem solve and pursue the new ideas. An art teacher's second role is to provide students with the skills, techniques and knowledge to be able to create that creative mentioned things.
