Integrating other subjects into art lessons is something I feel strongly for. I am constantly trying to find connections and bridge learning for my students. As an educator I will work hard to bridge what students are learning in their core classes to what they are learning in the art room. I want my students to see that learning doesn’t end when they leave the classroom. My role as an educator is to build life-long learners. Effective teachers look for opportunities to build a sense of community in the classroom, school and beyond. Working together is so important to building lifelong learners that will go out into the world ready to make a difference and show kindness towards others.
