Ms. Novak is another art teacher that I have located with an awesome blog. Similar to the previous teacher blogs that I have discovered, Ms. Novak includes posts on product ideas, community projects, artists and cross-curricular lesson plans. The link included here references some of Ms. Novak’s best classroom management practices. As a new teacher, it is extremely helpful to have experienced teachers provide little tidbits of information about things that could get lost in the shuffle. For example, in this post, you will see some end of school recommendations that a new teacher might neglect because all they can think of is the end of the first year of survival. I am truly grateful for all of the teachers who have developed blogs and shared their ideas.
