I just returned from Seattle where I attended a Board of Directors meeting for the National Art Education Association. Thank you Deborah Reeve, Kim Huyler Defibaugh, Pat Franklin, Melanie Dixon, and the entire NAEA staff for your excellent leadership. So much was accomplished, and I’m looking forward to the National Convention in March. I was inspired by all my friends on the board and look forward to the tasks ahead. Thank you Diane Wilkin, Cris Guenter, Scott Russell, Cindy Parrott-Todd, Jen Dahl, Pete Curran, Josh Drews, Jessica Burton Aulisio, Lisa Stuart Whitehead, Michelle Grohe, and everyone else for your inspiration as leaders in art education (I have much to live up to). 🙂 It was a great meeting, and I’m enjoying working with and getting to know you all so much better!
