Hello friends! I just got back from Chicago and had a BLAST at the NAEA National Conference!
No, Elsa is not a member of NAEA.
I did learn a lot, from art educators all over the country, however. I got a ton of new lesson Ideas and I can't wait to use them! I don't want this post to be super serious, given my previous post, so here is a list of some of the fun things the kids say to me!
boy: what bus do you take home?
Me: oh, I drive my car here.
Boy: how old ARE you?
Me: I'm 20.
Boy: Oh, I thought you were 10.
Same Boy: I'm going to make a crown for you, because you're a queen.
Girl: (looks at my belly) are you having a baby?
Me: (has to walk away to laugh)
Of course, there are serious things the students say too. My parents are divorced, my dad was in prison, I don't see my mom a lot. It can be depressing, but those few kids can brighten any day.
