I would be glad to serve in this capacity. Give me the links and I will take care of it. For my humble credits, I teach AP 2D Design, focused on Photography and Graphic Design portfolios. I have also juries photo contests for magazines.

Hi from the Latin School of Chicago, I am seeking a photography teacher who might be interested in having our advanced students comment and critique each others work via a blog.

Every year I send home a letter which includes an overview of my art program, my philosophy, a wish list (for recycled materials), etc. To me it is a slowed down version of what I want to tell the parents at back to school/meet the teacher night. Do you write a beginning of the year letter? What do you include?

I'm an art teacher but I'm currently teaching Spanish instead. I found a way to get the art into my life by creating murals with the Spanish club. We completed one last year and are almost finished with the second mural. I also integrate art into the Spanish curriculum and I'm always looking for more ideas for art projects that combine the two.

We have a very involved Fine Arts program at Ravenscroft, with a very strenuous performing schedule. We also have many athletic teams playing each season and vigorous academic expectations. As each area continues to grow, we find our students being pulled in three different directions. Does anyone have an innovative way to help those students involved in both Fine Arts and athletics participate in both activities, while at the same time not compromising their academic progress? We've looked at trying to incorporate school-day performances to cut down on conflicts. We also added one whole day of "celebration" at the end of the year where the student body and faculty are engaged in our performances and art demonstrations. This day of celebration helps avoid conflicts with AP exams, senior internships, Middle and Upper School exams, etc. I'd love to hear how your school handles the "piggybacking" of students and their activities.

Hello! I am two weeks away from Opening Night for our high school musical (Footloose). I am always looking for helpful tips to ease the chaos of dress rehearsal week. So my ears and eyes are open!
