a two for one deal!!

Your child might be coming home saying that they now have two art teachers! Its TRUE! Mrs. Elder had been asked to move art to a cart. As the ART team, we decided the best environment for teaching art would be to team teach and share the large art room. We now are teaching two art classes at once! Your children will be recieving learning inspirations from two wonderful teachers this year. So far the classes have been great and we look forward to working together! ABOVE- Mrs. Elder and I at an early release day art teacher's meeting. We were having too much fun together!!
