I'd like to introduce to Art Education Intern Emily Barber!
Emily is a graduate from Michigan State University. Her favorite art mediums are printmaking and oil painting. Emily is currently doing her student teaching internship at Willow Ridge Elementary grades 1st - 6th. Next semester she'll be teaching at Grand Ledge High School in grades 9th - 12th.
Her most memorable moment so far in her internship experience was having a fifth grade class beg to be able to continue discussing abstract painting. She loves talking to students about what they created, and why they made specific choices.
When asked about which art education topics she's most passionate about she responding, "I'm passionate about choice based education, as well as STEAM education."
