January rundown of the most read posts

Norman Rockwell
Girl Running with Wet Canvas, 1930

"Rockwell’s contributions to our visual legacy, many of them now icons of American culture, have found a permanent place in our national psyche."

American Chronicles, The Art of Norman Rockwell

Yesterday, the 3 February, American people and world admirers celebrated the 122th anniversary of Norman Rockwell.

One of the most popular American artists of the past century, Rockwell (1894-1978) was a "keen observer of human nature and a gifted storyteller". 

I love his illustrations. They chronicle scenes of ordinary people in everyday life wonderfully.

Until the 13 February, you can visit the exhibition The Art of Norman Rockwell at MOA. Don't miss this awesome event if you are teaching near the BYU Museum of Art.

Wonder on January! So many good things I shared with my usual readers!

Here are the most popular posts of the last month:

Oh! Yes, tonight it's Harry Potter Books Night. Your Potterheads are so excited! All over the world, librarians will became Hogwarts for a night.

Hope you are enjoying your classes. And of course you have new ideas to digital digital resources as video games, animated short movies, apps and social media to enhance the curriculum you are teaching. 

February is the month of Valentine's Day, Carnival traditions and some holiday time. So feel happy, wherever you are, you have a challenging job. Be creative! Don't lose your joy and spontaneity of teaching. 

Teaching is a challenging work with many unique frustrations, but the rewards of are numerable. Keep that in mind. 

I'm back to posting the normal roundup every week.
