Craft, Art, and the Balancing Act

Teaching is a work of Craft. Knowing how to follow a prescribed scope and sequences, use district curriculum, and incorporate Teaching Best Practices.

It is also a work of Art. I get inspired by my coworkers and bloggy friends and then my creative juices get flowing.

So, the Balancing Act. Allowing my classroom to reflect my craft and my art.

This year has been a lot about learning a Craft. It has been challenging, and rewarding. And much of the time overwhelming. I have high expectations for myself, and this year has felt like taking a college class and not knowing how to get to the end. 

I am hopeful that I can use what I learned this year and create next year to flow smoothly. To have a classroom that is full of Craft and Art.

Pin It!


  1. Oh my!!! How true this is. I look forward to each new year as I feel that I learn so much with each current year! I am happy to be growing along with you!

  2. We are studying the 7habits of healthy kids. One of them is "begin with the end in mind." Maybe you can use that habit to help you achieve your goals next year.

  3. I like your thought that it's a balancing act - so true!


I love reading your comments. Thanks for leaving one!
