As art teachers, we know that sometimes it’s tricky to feel like we belong at school. When you’re on a cart, it can be even more difficult because you don’t have a room to call your home. Today I’d like to share some of the best web resources for art teachers on a cart. Sometimes just knowing you aren’t alone in your situation can help get you through a tough day!
1. Tales From the Traveling Art Teacher!
Heidi O’Hanley has a lot of experience teaching in tricky situations, one of them being on a cart. Her blog, Tales from the Traveling Art Teacher! has some fantastic posts specifically for art teachers on carts. If you’re on a cart, I’m sure you’ll find yourself nodding along to her post 10 Things a Traveling Art Teacher Will Always Do.
2. The Art-on-a-Cart Art Teachers Facebook Page
Facebook can be a wonderful way to connect with other educators in your specific niche. If you’re interested in connecting with other teachers on carts from across the country, like the Art-on-a-Cart Art Teachers Facebook Page. It has over 100 members and is growing all the time!
It’s our wish that every art teacher would have the fabulous room that he or she deserves. However, if you’re currently on a cart, know that there are resources out there for you. So hook up with some people in a similar situation and start sharing your triumphs and struggles!
Teachers on a cart, tell us, what resources have we missed?
