It's that time of year again, when the Education Committee preps the space for the annual stampede of over 1000 third graders. An inspiring night, really brought tears to my eyes as I looked around the room. All graduates in art education at MSSU that I mentored; or current student teachers finally making their transition. The director of education, the magnificent Karalee, also one of mine. Amber, the supremely capable new art education faculty at MSSU who took my place, and now Ashley, the first PSU student to volunteer with the program. What a statement on building community!
