The gifts of teaching

How cool is it that I have art on my refrigerator from kids to whom I’m not related? Here’s the latest acquisition, courtesy of a fifth-grader whose language arts class I guest-taught this week.

That was fun.

Today, I guest-taught art at a high school for students with learning differences. While the students worked on caricatures and 3-D sculptures, we also talked about President Obama, Mitt Romney, Douglas Adams, music, horses, travel, and hot peppers. While I hope the regular teacher’s son is feeling much better, I also hope I get to come back at some point, if not to that class, then to another.
