  1. Joan, love your blog and your philosophy. I’ve been teaching for 30 years and learned long ago that the best learning happens when kids are inspired and teachers capture those moments. Emergent curriculum works! My class just finished putting together our annual Art Show for the community. I’ll include pictures on my next blog post. The STEM that goes into art (my old record player and records, for example) makes it STEAM, and that’s the title of the Art Show. Thank you for reading a recent post on my blog, too.

    1. Thank you for liking my blog. I was very fortunate for my last 15 years in the elementary classroom to be able to combine my two loves of art and science. Now I am teaching what I learned to college students and enjoying sharing my discoveries of what works with others. I am a firm believer that if you allow students choice they will follow their passions and learn far more than it you try to force them to learn a set curriculum.
