Summer Update

So it has been a very busy but good summer. I went to Montreal with my family, watched fireworks on the beach for the fourth, taught summer camp, went to TN Arts Academy, and now I'm setting up my brand new classroom! Here are a few pictures from all of my adventures.

Dad checking out a bonsai tree.

Japanese Tea Garden inside of the Montreal Botanical Gardens

A healthy treat at the festival!

My new school... more still to come!

This is where my kiln will be going!   Cabinets, counter space, and a utility sink!

Bright colors everywhere! This is just a small section of hallway!

Four computer stations to go in the back of my room :)

The room is coming together, my orange accent wall :)

The view of the super cute playground from my classroom.

I've been in my classroom all last week, and attended an art teacher inservice yesterday. I'll continue to post updates as the new school year begins!
