New state...new because I have been in FL for eleven years, but I am originally from here, just not Wilmington.
New age group...new because I have been teaching high school for the past seven years, and middle school the four years before that...but I was actually teaching elementary school art before I moved to FL.
New way of teaching...we are 100% remote due to Covid, which unfortunately is not entirely 'new' because that is how I had to teach March-May at LWHS. What is new is that rather than 'crisis teaching' which is what teachers across the world were really doing, I (we) had some time to prepare for teaching this way.
Mrs. Parsons, the old teacher, left some great art posters so I kept them (THANK YOU, SARAH!) I went with a 'watercolor' theme for the room. Found SO MANY cute things at Oriental Trading com, which is what gave me the idea. Here is a link to their items in that theme...I am too embarrassed to tell you how many of these I own!
Also, due to teaching 100% remote first nine weeks I have a set up in my storage closet for recording my lessons and doing my live Zooms with the kids. I have the same set up at home for days when I work from home AND another one for if I am not at home.
