A Chat with Team Sparkle Marisa Gebert: AME 048
Marisa is a former K-8 art teacher from Georgia who was one of over 500 people who applied for a job as a standards writer for Deep Space Sparkle last Spring. Marisa helps teachers all over the world by providing documentation for all of the DSS lessons inside The Members Club.
Life has changed a lot for Marisa, who went from working as an art teacher to staying home with her newborn so she could work from home. It’s not always an easy transition but she moved through it beautifully. Her positive approach to life has allowed her to make the decisions that have been right for her family.
IN THIS EPISODE YOU’LL LEARN:
- How Marisa stuck with her love of teaching art, against the advisement of others
- What grades and ages were more challenging for her than others
- The various challenges of grading children’s artwork
- Why Marisa always chooses to do what she loves (and how to see the value in that)
- How your goals and dreams can change with different seasons of your life
- How taking risks led her to her happiness
- Why finding time to create art for yourself is so important
