So much is going on right now! I feel like I have been see-sawing between 12 hour days of bear making to 12 hour days of getting ready for school. But my new classroom is mostly organized--I'll just have to do the rest as I go along , school has started, and I finally have a few bears finished! I will post them when my camera battery charges. It is great to be teaching again. As I mentioned in a post a few weeks ago, when I feel stretched to the limit by the myriad of things a teacher must do outside of instructional time, I consider letting go of the teaching career (but never the bears and dolls.) After just one day back with my young art students, I am in love with my job again!
