Last week I received this letter announcing I had been accepted into the 2022 class at the NAEA School for Art Leaders. I am honored and absolutely thrilled for this opportunity to explore leadership with other art educators and the chance to develop myself. This comes at the perfect time in my life as I have been wanting the chance to think about what my priorities are and the directions I want to go as an artist and educator.
Earlier this month I attended the National Art Educators Association Convention in NYC. It was exilerating! I got to see old friends, make new friends, meet people I only knew via zoom, and listen to inspiring stories from artists and art educators from all over the country. And now I get to continue this energy with the School for Art Leaders! I can’t wait for this journey to begin!
