Staff meetings. So much fun. So productive. So relevant. So not true.
Back to school time is upon us. The emails are already blowing up my inbox. I’m heading into a week of meetings, professional development and various training sessions. Maybe, like me, you approach these days with refreshed optimism. Oh, how quickly it fades.Be strong, friends. Soon enough the students will be coming through those doors and all that training information, all those “important” handouts, will be forgotten in the bottom of our teacher bags, buried under SMARTR goals, assessments and learning objectives.
A Personal Note: It appears I am “back”. Time will tell if it sticks. These past two years (and of course, by “years,” I’m speaking in terms of school years) have really put me through the ringer, to say the least. If art teachers really do have expiration dates, I may be nearing mine soon, but until then, I’m still here. I’m back, and it’s good to see you again, friends.
I’ll be returning to Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, and Pinterest soon, so don’t forget to follow me.

Totally with you on the expiration date. Have been going at the art teacher mode for almost 37 yrs now and the changes I have seen and been through. You make me laugh and you tell it like it is, like I think. Really enjoy your humor.
