Hi! My name is Tracy Hare and I am in my 11th year of teaching middle school art for a small district in central Minnesota. I received my B.S. in Art Education from St. Cloud State University and my M.Ed. from the University of Minnesota.
In my classroom, I strive for deepening 21st century skills by encouraging my students to practice critical thinking, solve open-ended problems creatively and work together to produce, connect and share their artwork.
When I am not answering to “Ms. Hare” at school, I am answering to “Mom” at home. My husband and I have three little people that provide us endless energy, motivation and inspiration.
I am thrilled to be contributing a middle school perspective as a member of The Art of Education writing team.
