I had an art teacher email me and ask to have lunch with me today to talk about issues of advocacy and curriculum. It feels nice to be able to sit and talk to art teachers about their reality/ies. It is a nice break from reading about art teachers. All this education won’t mean squat if I’m not able to use it to transform the field. So, for today I’m putting “academia” on hold for “education” and expecting to be energized by it.
