My main goal is to obtain a teaching credential so I can advance my knowledge in my field of work, continue spreading education on Art, help kids expand their artistic creativity, hear their artistic voices, give them that shimmer of happiness when they realize they can create something beautiful with their own minds and not with a specific step by step instruction on how an art project should look. A lot of children in this age do not try to think creatively or come up with their own ideas when it comes to something artistic. Being an elementary school after school program Art teacher, I try to help them in that aspect and try to inspire their inner creativity and own ideas. When I become a full time teacher I will be able to do so much more because I will have many more tools to help me help the children.
