I've been learning

Final days of my AOE class "Showing Student Growth in Art".  It has not been a disappointment.   I have been challenged to extend my thinking and definitely stepped outside of my comfort zone.  The discussions have been enlightening and thought provoking.  I will begin school in a few weeks fully armed to face the discussions of DDMs (District Determined Measures) and feel like I can make an worthwhile contribution.  I was most surprised to learn how far ahead other districts seem to be in this new phase of teacher evaluation.  I was thankful to be able to view some of the materials other educations are using and to gain deeper understanding as they shared previous experiences.  
And now....summer vacation!
