I do not have my certification to teach art. However, for the past year, I taught Kindergarten through eighth grade art. While I do not expect to be hired for my art skills, here are a few examples of classroom management and lessons that I used this past year.
Some of the goals in these lessons
students to develop the skills of inhibitive control, working memory,
cognitive flexibility; the three skills involved in executive

kindergarten art sample, the students practice inhibitive control by
