Hey friends and enemies!
Let's Talk About Our Future...
As part of my long-term professional plan (that sounds so fancy!), I've been trying to document my teaching more. This means posting videos, blog posts, etc.
I'm not gonna lie: it's a lot to actually do and to keep track of. But the more I do it, the easier it gets.
The "keeping track of" is easy, I use this Content Creation Checklist. It has all of the steps that I use to make a video or other content and the steps I go through to get it done across platforms and APPs like Google Drive, WeVideo, Youtube, PicCollage, Blogger and Instagram.
Short term goal: get the content out there, document my teaching and create content that will help students (and me) in my classroom.
Mid-range goal: to share content that other art teachers could use in their practice
So how do I make the time to do this?
- My kids are teenagers and pretty much ignore me. Just kidding (Am I?)! Either way, they require less hands-on micro managing.
- It's summer break for me. Will I be able to sustain any of this while working full time and having all of those teens keeping me busy? Not sure. One day at a time.
