About me

Industry Education
Introduction I've been thinking about starting this blog for so long. It wasn't the pictures or even the time that stopped was coming up with a name. Yes, seems like all the clever ones were taken. So I decided on a name that describes a week in my work life. 1170, that's the number of students I see every week teaching art at four schools. I work for the Clarkston School District in Clarkston, Michigan. I teach Young fives up to fifth grade. And, for the parents checking in here, I cover North Sashabaw, Pine Knob Elementary, The Early Childhood Center and 3rd and 4th Grade at Clarkston Elementary. I teach eight to ten classes per day depending on the building and let's just say I'M BUSY! The key is materials management and a sense of humor. I LOVE what I do and often tell kids when they tell me they want to be an art teacher..."You will have the best job in the building."
