So I was one of six art teacher picked from across the state to write the TN State Art Standards for the elementary level. We had a two days to get started. It was a pretty good mix of people, and surprisingly we got along well(this was not as much the situation when I was on the team that wrote Metro Nashville's art curriculum!?!?!). I felt we truly got a lot done, and there was a lot of work to do(and still left to do!!!). We'll be gathering together again in January for three days to finish the job!

Dr. Ed's Annual Art Drive 2009

Each year Dr. Ed has an art drive during the month of Aug. Members bring in $20 in new art supplies, and the get an adjustment! The art supplies are then divided between Hermitage Elementary & Tulip Grove Elementary! Mrs. Fritz & I are extremely thankful to Dr. Ed & the members of his practice!!! The drive allows our basic needs to be met(crayons, glue, scissors, markers...etc) and we are able to use our supply money that is given by our schools for the other important materials for running a successful art program. It really has freed up a great deal of funds for other supplies! The basics add up & can take a major chunk of our money! This is my half of the take this year(imagine...another table full with to Mrs. Fritz!!!). Plus, we received many gift cards that we're excited to go spend(ok..I already went to Wal-Mart last night and purchased a bunch of items I needed!!!) THANK YOU DR. ED!!!!!!!
Check out his website & if you are in the Nashville Metro area...consider making him your chiropractor!!
