First Day!

What will be your first day project with students? Well Mr. E decided to have the kids paint.  He is brave  but I think I might do it too. Click on the link to read about Mr. E’s First day painting project!

If you heard of Cheyenne, WY  you probably heard of Cheyenne Frontier Days the Daddy of them All. A big western celebration in the country and as locals say our second Christmas but you probably haven’t heard of the Laramie Country Fair that happens a week later at the same place.  Well it more for the locals but I get an opportunity to judge students art from the Cheyenne Elementary schools.  I was amazed  of the quality work the kids did and if I enter some of my former student work  in the fair comparable. Anyway I let you decide

Last Full week of summer break!

It is August  and many of you are back to school either teaching or getting ready for the first day with student but if you are like me this is the last full week of summer break.  Get those summer projects done the you start in June, started to plan that first unit, and getting  the art room ready for students. At the same time wondering where did the time go by.  We know a fun relaxing  summer break most end and get ready to get back to what we love to do. Inspire the love of learning  and creative to the next generation.

I’m excited to start inspiring a new crop of kids  and geyt my next 10 years of teaching off to a good start. I see my Sunrise  and the adventure  begain.

What are you excited  about  this  come school year?

Old door closes and New door open!

The last ten years I’m been teaching in a small rural school district in Wyoming east of the state capital city Cheyenne, WY. Where I been the only K-6 Art teacher for 4 Elementary schools which it been a amazing and challenging experience. Well I enjoyed my time at Laramie 2 and very thankful for the opportunities and great memories I had during the 10 years as The LCSD#2 District Elementary Art Teacher but there are times when you feel it is time to move on and start a new adventure. As many you know that new adventure will start at the end of August where I will be teaching art at Sunrise Elementary School in Cheyenne. I am excited of my new journey in my careere but I will miss the students and the great staffs at AES, BES, CES, and PBES. Thank you Laramie 2 Community for allowing me be apart of your great Community….sunrise
