Teaching 500 kids made easy
I’m doing a three day residency at Wolftever Creek Elementary in Ooltewah, TN part of the Chattanooga school system. I’ve been getting ready for weeks wondering what I was thinking when I agreed to do this job. Usually it is one class at a time. This school does a special arts event the first three Fridays of March. All the classes in each grade come at one time. The amazing music teacher who wrote the grant to the Tennessee Arts Commission promised me lots of help from teachers and PTA volunteers. She really came through. I’ve never had so much help. The volunteers set up the supplies for each class, knew the directions and worked with the kids on their projects, cleaned up, and even loaded my car. The music teacher put on a program after we finished. Hope she is home now with a hot cup of something comforting and enjoying her accomplishment. I can’t wait for next week.
