Hello all! I am in the process of starting on my Bachelors Degree in Fine Art with the plan to complete a teaching certificate along side it. After doing a massive amount of googling this seems like the most straight forward way to be qualified to teach art to students k-12. I’m new to the teaching world so I might be totally wrong and so I was hoping to get advice. How did you go about getting your qualifications to be an art teacher? What do schools look for when hiring one possible teacher over another? The state I would specifically be thinking about is Oregon if that helps. Thank you in advance!

So...I had an interview today! I think it went fairly good. It was over the phone and it was over in 10 minutes but with a guarantee of another next week in person! However, he (fine arts director) asked of I had a portfolio I can show. I do have some work but nothing super serious. That's the issue I'm having. I have no student work and barely any of my personal work I can showcase. How screwed am I? Any advice?

I found out I will be teaching Pre-K art this year and it’s also my first year teaching. I don’t have any experience with Pre-K and just wondering how to come up with a whole year of things to do with them? classes will be 30 min.

Hi everyone! I’m actually a long time follower of this sub because I’ve always wanted to be an art teacher, was told there wouldn’t be any jobs and ended up getting my undergrad in Graphic Design instead.

As you could probably imagine, I know nothing about teaching because I went a completely different path. However, I recently decided that I wanted to get back on track to my original plan. I got accepted into an 18 month graduate program and I’m starting this September.

Anybody have any general advice for somebody going in blindly? I’ve done my fair share of research but there’s only so much you can find online. I’m in NY so I’d love to hear other people’s experiences going through an expedited Art Ed school with all the state certifications and what not.

I am an art teacher, and although I've been teaching for many years, I have no idea what I would even want for a gift when I retire. Thus I have no idea.

This would be a gift for an elementary art teacher who was very well loved.

Newbie. Trying to plan my jumping off point and could use any advice. I'll be teaching drawing and painting, and art foundations.

My First year teaching (the year before last) I tried it out for 2 quarters, and failed miserably. Many of my students could not figure it out, they couldn't consistently sign in on their phone without login errors, and most of the students thought it was stupid.

I recently logged back in to GC, and it seems they have made it a bit more streamlined, and also trying on Mobile web and the App, it seems more user friendly. Seeing this made me want to give it a shot again, but I am not sure.

It would be used for students to turn in Sketchbooks, turn in Art Projects, find additional resources that would be posted along with the Lesson, provide classroom updates, etc.

Do any of you implement GC in your classrooms? How so?

I’m not a teacher yet, simply a student on the path to receiving their bachelors degree. All the time, I wonder where I go from there. Could any art teachers on here share words of wisdom with a girl who wings it most of the time?
