I had a high school ART teacher
who believed that creativity lived in me.
she taught me more than ART.
she taught me about
and thinking bigger than my surroundings.
40 years later
I have been given the opportunity
to teach high school ART.
I am full of excitement
to be with students this coming fall
and teach them about
and thinking bigger than their surroundings.
If you are a dreamer, come in.
If you are a dreamer, a wisher, a liar,
A hope-er, a pray-er, a magic bean buyer…
If you’re a pretender, come sit by my fire,
For we have some flax golden tales to spin.
Come in! Come in!
