Another school year has come to an end for me. This marks 9 year of teaching elementary art. I have had the privilege of being in the same school and seeing numerous classes of 5th graders all the way through from Kindergarten to 5th grade. I get to really see them grow up!
This year brought new challenges. These challenges have strengthened us in the long run, but were very difficult in the moment. I never thought I'd have to deal with the loss of a student. But our school and community have truly come together in a beautiful way. I am proud to part of the NG community and am #caymolstrong.
Personally, I also tried to find balance between work and home. It was a hard thing to do! I didn't find balance very well; some things were left undone for too long. There's just not enough time in the day! I now have specific goals for next year, year 10 with my students! :)
Now to enjoy my summer!
