I have been a long term sub art teacher for the last quarter of the school year at a charter school in Forest Lake, MN. Unfortunately it must come to an end when the school year does. I have truly enjoyed my time here and will be sad to leave but a new chapter has been opened for me in recent days. I have accepted a teaching position in Granite Falls, MN as a full time elementary art teacher!!! I was initially job searching in the twin cities and surrounding area but was not having much luck. I would either interview and it would go really well (I thought), even getting second interviews in some case, or I wouldn't get an interview at all. No call or communication. I personally thought that was just bad business not to send any conformation or communication. It wasn't until I moved away from the metro when the hospitality increased. Email communication immediately after sending application, personal phone call to schedule interview, meeting immediately scheduled for the next week, and phone call for job offer five days later. Im very excited to begin my new position this August. Stay tuned! You will be seeing elementary lesson postings from me next year!!!

Im dedicating this blog post to my college/teacher/blogger friend Molly (also known as "art and ideas that grow"). She opened my up to a love to everything mustached. This book, written and illustrated by Kevin Sherry, is about a cute little octopus who paints all over the ocean spreading his creativity for other creatures to see. Great inspiration for an art lesson.
