About the Author

Sarah Krajewski

I learned about AOEU and its amazing articles and resources as a student in college. After teaching for a few years, I was approached about filming some PRO Packs, then joined the AOEU writing team for a few years, and now, I host the weekly Instagram Live Chats.

I am a K-5 art educator in Cambridge, Wisconsin. You may hear my students refer to me as Mrs. K. or as the art room glitter fairy! When we use glitter in the art room, I dress in wings and a tutu as the “Glitter Fairy” and sprinkle glitter onto kids’ glue lines.

One constant in our art room is the empowering art room mantra we recite each day. It goes like this: “My mantra—I am positive. I am creative. I am mindful. I am amazing. I am an artist.” Every day, I remind myself that my job is to be here for my students…mentally, emotionally, and artistically.

Outside my art room, I love to paint happy abstract creations and have also written and illustrated a children’s book about being exactly you. I share my adventures with my amazing husband and ridiculous cats, Fuzz Aldrin and Marvin. I also enjoy running, mural making, and being outside!
