Life at the Department of Education has been filled with lots of  
energy lately.  I hope you continue to recognize the work your  
students are doing in celebration of Youth Art Month, Music in Our  
Schools Month and Arts Education Advocacy Month.

Just a quick update that there are 3 new posts at the MEARTSED blog....
* Teacher of the Year (read about the two arts teachers who have been  
nominated this year) and join me in wishing them well!
* Visual Thinking Strategy Workshop, April 10th, 9-3 at Point Lookout,  
Northport, $60.  REGISTER SOON!!! The first 100 will be accepted.   
PLEASE NOTE: The link to registration will be up later on today,  
Wednesday, March 18th.
* Up in the Sky and in the House!

Also posted on the blog are new prof. dev. opportunities, upcoming  
events, music teacher and nominee for Teacher of the Year, Jayne  
Sawtelle's blog, and a link to a good article found in National Middle  
School Assoc. professional journal.

You can also see the details for the Visual Thinking Strategy workshop  
on the arts ed webpages at the Department of Education at http://www.maine.gov/education/lres/vpa/news.html

I'm headed north for the Aroostook Regional Professional Community  
Arts Education meeting in Presque Isle and look forward to attending  
the State Maine Drama Festival this weekend at Rockland High School.   
Good luck to all the teachers and students participating!  You can see

Make it a great day,
