Today marked the end of my 7th year of teaching elementary art! I cannot believe this school year is over. It has gone by so quickly!
On the last day of school each year, our 5th graders have the exciting opportunity to parade through the school for the "5th Grade Walk." The entire student population lines the hallways and cheers with streamers. It's loud, but a lot of fun. I teared up this year...
This was actually the second class of 5th graders that I have taught all the way through elementary school. I have seen them grow up from Kindergarten babies to preteens ready for middle school!
Usually I teach an art camp or two during the summer. This year I have decided not to teach camp. I will have my first true summer vacation! I plan to create art daily, read some good books, sit by the pool, and catch up on some tv shows. It's going to be amazing! (If I don't get bored by the lack of routine...)
