Hello! My name is Jennifer Leonard, and I am the K-6 Elementary Teacher at Jenkintown School District. I am finishing my Masters of Art Education at Kutztown University, and created this blog to share some key research findings over the course of my studies. Currently, I am working on my final project for the Graduate Seminar course. Here are some valuable art education resources that have shaped my research and teaching philosophy:
