Janine Campbell, an amazing middle level educator from Michigan whose classroom has won awards for STEAM education, student artwork, and digital innovation, joins AOE Live to share some of her secrets to back to school success. Janine, the 2015 NAEA Western Region Middle Level Educator of the Year, tells why she brings out clay on the first day, how to get your students engaged immediately, and why you might just catch her dancing on chairs.
Here are a few of the articles discussed and a few other gems from the Art of Ed:
- Janine has an engaging teaching blog and classroom website, and the show discussed her recent post about being bold and brave in your teaching.
- It’s also worth spending some time on her school’s Artsonia Gallery.
