“Why are you an art teacher?”

“Why are you a tech  teacher?”

I’ve been wearing a smock and/or working from a computer lab for decades   now, and I still get asked that question.  A lot.

I suppose it’s because I’m such a geek.  I’ll walk into a classroom (I used to be one of those “art on a cart” teachers – it’s not as bad as it sounds) and while the students are finishing their paintings/drawings/etc. I’d  show the classroom teacher how to find a Discovery Education Streaming video that matches their state curriculum or how to set up a free blog so they can post their daily homework assignments.

I love teaching technology, but I also love teaching art, and in this day and age I don’t think I can really separate the two.

So that’s the purpose of this blog:  for me to ramble on about art, education, technology, and any combination of those I can manage.
