Teaching School

Well, this year has been bliss for me so far. I went from grading an eternity of papers to painting and drawing with kids! I went from teaching a class students really do not like - rarely do they like English - to teaching a class they choose to take and really want to learn! Why is it that people love to learn art? I don't see many English grammar classes offered online, but I see tons of art classes offered online. People want to resuscitate the right side of their brains to keep them from atrophy!

I have had a great time so far in art classes. I hope that my students feel the same way!

I taught English, too. Always had to grade a bunch of papers or read to get ahead of the students. I wish I had majored in teaching art to high school students, but alas, I didn't, and can't even work now due to fibromyalgia/chronic fatigue syndrome.

I'm glad you're having fun with your art class both at school and with Suzi Blu!
