After volunteering in her children’s classrooms teaching art, June Wood decided to take a stab at pursuing a paid position. After approaching a few schools in her district, June was offered the job as an art specialist.
If you ever wondered what opportunities are available for those who do not have a teaching credential, this episode is for you.
June and I chat about her unusual approach to managing her schedule, what projects she uses as a cornerstone for her skills and what advice she would give others looking to move into teaching art.
As a Sparkler Spotlight recipient in The Sparkler’s Club, June complied three questions she wanted to ask Patty. We chat about ceramic tile murals, how to gauge how long a project will take a child and a class and how I transitioned into a paid position.
WHAT YOU’LL LEARN:
– How June began her art education journey and how she got the confidence to start teaching
– The challenges of working at different schools
– June’s experiences in teaching art from a cart
– How June is able to adapt her lessons with the limited time available in each classroom
– Why there are disadvantages to introducing more choices into your curriculum
– June’s advice for brand new teachers
