There are a ton of reasons teaching art is ‘the best profession on earth.’ All art teachers have their own unique stories outlining how their careers started and what brought them to teaching art in the classroom. A while back, we asked our Facebook Fans why they became art teachers. The answers are truly inspiring, as you can see below.
As you begin a new school year, it can be easy to get pulled into the ‘rat race’ of politics, schedules, and the stress of setting up an art room for the new year. Perhaps these ideas will motivate you to think about why YOU became an art teacher, and remember why you got into this profession in the first place. If you want to get more updates from AOE (some that aren’t ever on our website) be sure to follow our Facebook page, too!
So, share your story – Why did YOU become an art teacher?
