Yesterday I returned from the National Art Educators Association Conference and as I sit here and reflect upon this remarkable experience, I know in my heart that art education is my intended path. It is a great thing to be around others who share your passion, inspire you, and support you in every way possible. If you are an art educator, I highly recommend joining as I cannot think of any other professional development that can provide this level of support in such a short amount of time. As a beginning educator I found this conference an invaluable resource. I have heard many say that they can't afford it but in my opinion you can't afford not to do it. So to my NAEA friends, I will see you next year in Chicago!!!
