About me

Introduction I started this blog in my Children's Literature class at Appalachian State University, where I am an Art Education Major. Even though the class is over, I think I will continue to read children's lit and share with anyone who is reading this blog, the wonderful books that are out there for children. A little about myself: I am most interested in the elementary age group and would like to begin teaching there when I graduate. I love to read, and I feel that it is important for me to know what children are reading and interested in as a means of improving my ability to teach them. There are so many ways that an art teacher can work with a classroom teacher to really enrich the curriculums and allow it to flow from one classroom to another. I feel like art is a very important part of school and should not be so easily cut from the curriculum. I have always loved to read, which I think stems from my Mom reading to me so much as a child. We had so many books; the Berenstein Bears, Dr.Seuss, etc. I still enjoy the illustrations and creativity of Dr. Seuss. Now I love to read the classics, and my favorite author is Jane Austen.
