One thought on “About”
Every time I get the opportunity to take a workshop with you at any Art Ed conference, I do because I always leave inspired! Over 10 years ago I took a fabulous workshop with you prior to entering the field on professionalism, resumes and cover letters. I really feel that workshop helped prepare me to be a great candidate in the job market! I have a really amazing student teacher this year and I am wondering if you would be willing to share the power-point or materials with me to share with her? I wanted to pay it forward to a energetic, hardworking bright new teacher. Please email me anything you would be willing to share at firstname.lastname@example.org Thank you in advance for your hard work in the field of Art Education!
Fondly, Michael Catalano
