Tomorrow is the day my career officially takes a new path. Starting tomorrow I am no longer an Art Educator, but I’m an Assistant Principal for the Duval County Public Schools.
I am hoping that by taking on this new role, I will have the desire to be creative again as an artist. I never thought being an Art Teacher would zap my desire to paint, but it has. The past couple of years painting has seemed like a chore. I look forward to the days when painting becomes a way to escape the madness of the real world.
This blog will take on some new changes as well. From time to time I will not only post the traditional art related posts, but posts about education as well. I am new to administration and as I learn new and exciting things I will post them to this blog.
I would be interested in hearing from people who have made the jump from teaching the arts to a role in administration. What were some of your challenges and how did you overcome them?
