For those of you who don't know, I teach French and beginner art to secondary students.
Am I destined to be a school teacher?
I do love my students so much. The reason I became a teacher in the first place was to inspire youth and help them learn values and attitudes that would guide them into their adult years.
I do feel that I accomplish that to a fairly considerable degree, but I find that my own growth and progression has been stalling lately.
I can't help thinking:
Is this it? Is this to be my existence, my routine for the next 25 years?
I decided to turn to my art journal to try and express myself creatively. I still haven't found an answer; I suppose it will come to me over time.
In the meantime, here is my creative result. I think the right-hand fish's outfit makes me feel the ultra satisfied with this page. That, and the pink crown on the left-hand fish.
