How Making Art (In)Forms My Work as a Teacher

Today I have been looking at images I made in classrooms and workshops where I am teaching/co-teaching, largely in Newark, NJ.   The images illustrate work done with principals, teachers, and children.

I have been sharing these images and insights via Twitter today. Here are a few of the tweets.

In doing this work today, I realize how influenced I am as a teacher by the art I make. I uploaded this portfolio of black and white images I made during a four year period to slideshare.  (See below) This got me thinking about how observing and seeing though various lenses influences the multiple perspectives I bring to my work as an educator.

All of this is to say that when we think about professional learning, the quiet out of school learning we do ought to matter.
