Meeting with Susan! 1.5 hours

I have still not been in session at Hopkins High School. It has been extremely difficult to join Randi because of the background checks, application process, and so on. It is a little disheartening and has me a bit down but I am sure that it will all work itself out soon! In the meantime, I have been able to meet up with the wonderful Susan Armington. I feel so lucky to be working with her. We met up for coffee and apparently, we share very similar interests when it comes to travel and hobbies, which is fun. She says that her biggest goal as a teaching artist is to have everyone walk away with a piece that is special to them. She shared one of her biggest teaching moments exampling this. I also got to see her studio. Her work is awesome, it is large and in charge. It really reflects what she is like as a person and I am so excited to be working with her!
