Retired elementary teacher. I was also an art teacher. I have a Multiple Subjects credential, a Single Subject credential for Art and English, LDS/ESL certification, a Master’s Degree in Elementary Education with a Mathematics focus, and Montessori certification. All elementary grades were covered, as well as special students such as ELL, GATE and at-risk. Share2Learn and Creating Art With Kids lessons and resources were created to promote creativity and choice among students and encourage them to create authentic art. Developmental appropriateness and differentiation options are all considered. Teachers’ individuality is also taken into consideration. This is why the instructions are not specific, expectations are flexible, and student pages with clip art are kept to a minimum.
