I had the awesome opportunity to attend the GAEA (Georgia Art Education Association) Fall Conference this past weekend in Valdosta.
I went with my great friend Mary (http://elfersartroom.blogspot.com/) and we saw about ten other art teachers from Fulton County as well. The conference was really nice and full of learning. You could choose which session you went to at all different hours. Some were about how to incorporate technology, others were more about the latest in art education theory, some offered insight into classroom tips while even others were purely about lesson sharing and art making. There were many chances for us to learn about ways in which to advocate for our program, and I hope to do more of that here at State Bridge. I had an awesome time and I hope I am a better teacher for all of you Bobcats after attending.
