It looks like God is calling me in another direction. Earlier in the summer, I was made aware of an art teaching position with the Galesburg-Augusta Community Schools (G-A). The position is full time and has great potential. When I met with a team of G-A people in early July, I learned that the district has aspirations of building a strong art program. However, I was not selected as the candidate at the time of the interview.
Last week, the principal from G-A high school contacted me and informed me that they had found a way to bring me on board, if I was still interested in the position. After much discussion with my family, I decided to accept the position. This career move will give me the opportunity to share my love for the arts and to build a strong program, which focuses on student choice and arts advocacy.
Yesterday I met with the new superintendent, Wendy Somers and I am officially a G-A Ram!
So, here we go –
Time to transform this space from a high school classroom to a TAB Studio.
Then, on to the middle school!
