Well, the second semester has begun. Where has this school year gone??
I have been accepted to the “Feed Your Soul” Summer Teacher Institute at the Maine College of Art in Portland, Maine, that’s at the end of June. I am SUPER excited as a few colleagues that I met at last year’s Summer Teacher Institute in Florida also got accepted so we are stoked to be meeting up again.
What else….the school is apparently trying to unblock WordPress again, but I changed the blogging this semester to only when they finish a project, so we’ll see if that will be better. They haaaated the other site I had to use when WordPress got blocked, and they built up quite a resentment to blogging, so now they either create a StopMotion video of their project or blog a big entry at the end of their project. I wanted it to be organic, and it wasn’t so I didn’t want to fight it. This meant that I now grade more vigorously for in-class participation, which is fine. I should have been anyway, but now their grade is more dependent on being there and working than before.
I’ve been not on Twitter as much, but that’s okay. It became so much to keep up with it all. I’m doing a January Photo Challenge, so that’s been good, but other than that, it’s been pretty quiet on my account.
The Fine Arts Fair is in a few months, MARCH!!!!, so I’m trying to prepare for that too.
Alright, that’s all I’ve got!
