Some of you know that I "retired" from teaching back in June. I was pretty excited about it. I was going to take a few months off, substitute, travel, and then be a part of a team that opened another school.
That was my plan. It was an awesome plan. I REALLY liked my plan.
Funny thing about my plans to leave teaching, I’ve tried it twice now and it hasn’t worked out. George Costanza said it best, “Every time I think I’m out, they pull me back in.”
I’m happy to announce that I will be back in the classroom teaching 4th through 8th grade art at a charter school in North Carolina. In preparation to go back I created a lesson planner to use.
The lesson planner is a two page spread. It features:
Please feel free to download it for your personal use and let me know what you think.
The printable files were created by me, Rebecca Policastro Aranyi, for my personal use. I'm thrilled to provide them for your individual use. Please keep in mind that I reserve all rights on my photos, patterns, files, and blog posts; all of which were made by and belong to me, Rebecca Policastro Aranyi. These materials may not be republished or distributed without my express written permission. Printables come with no guarantee as to the outcome of the finished project, proceed at your own risk.
So, what does all that mean?
It means that I would love for you to use the lesson planner for you, your friends, and your family. If you blog about the lesson planner, please link back to the original blog posts and not directly to the pdf files.
You may not republish material from my blog on other sites (including linking directly to the pdf files). Do not distribute hard copies of the lesson planner to others. Do not distribute electronic copies of lesson planner via e-mail. Do not resell my lesson planner on Etsy, at craft fairs, or in any other commercial venue.
I read somewhere that quilts match their owners’ personality. If it is easy to create (design, piecing, and quilting), the owner is an easy going person. On the flip side, if it is difficult to put together (threads breaking during quilting, edges not lining up, puckers, etc.) than the person is challenging.
I wonder if that is true.
