Good morning on the day before Christmas!
I know that many of you have started on a well-deserved winter break and you may not see this email until you return to your teaching until after the 2014 starts. This email is filled with warm wishes for a very special holiday and the best new year!

Below are the most recent blog posts which will continue through the break and are located at http://meartsed.wordpress.com/. All kinds of resources, ideas, events - thanks to everyone who sent info!

As 2013 comes to an end I am reminded of how hugely grateful I am for the work you do each day for providing quality arts education programs for students! From the bottom of my heart - THANK YOU! I look forward to working with you in 2014!
Make it a great day,
