TEACHING EXPERIENCE

MY TEACHING STYLE

I use two methods of teaching in my classroom, which are teacher lead and collaborative grouping.I use formative and summative assessment to evaluate all grades and types of students.This allows myself and my students the ability to constantly monitor individual progress as well as group progress.When I begin teaching a new group of students who I have never had before,I use the demonstration method.Once I become more familar with a student or class I like to use the Collaborative method of teaching.Begining in kindergarten, I teach my children the principles of art and the elements of design,as well as intertwining art history throughout each lesson instead of presenting an art history lesson alone. They love learning about different artists and art styles, and are more open to trying new and creative ways than most of the adults that I teach. View them at all ages as being capable and you will be amazed at what they can do! My ultimate purpose as an art teacher is to open children's imaginations wide enough for them to peek in the door and want to open it all the way and walk through. I have always believed that the arts are crucial to the development of an educated society and that all of the arts lead to creativity, innovation, collaboration, critical thinking, problem solving, and cultural awareness. I also strongly believe that the arts are a crucial element in the successful teaching of all other subjects. It is important to integrate core subjects (math, reading, science, history, writing) into art lesson plans and equally important to integrate the arts into core subject lesson plans. I always try to integrate one or more of the core subjects into all of my plans.
