My name is Kateri Gill. I am an artist and elementary art teacher from Minnesota currently living in Jackson, MS. I attended Belhaven University and graduated with a BA in Art. My first two years as a teacher have been an education in itself. After a good deal of research and experimentation, I decided to take a Choice-Based approach in my classroom. It is my personal mission to hear out the potential ideas that my students have and help bring them to life. My dream is to encourage other educators to do the same in their own classrooms. Art teachers should look at the learning process they way they approach artwork. It is a process of trial and error that requires a process of brave responsiveness.
