Complimented Study's Discourse
-Brought together all the pieces
-Enhanced their meta-awareness No one here understands what I do! I have no time for my own art! College didn't prepare me for this! So, what got them to this place?
That led to the overarching research question of this study: How do preservice and novice art education teachers negotiate their professional identities as artists into the roles of teachers? Family, friends, teachers &
other influences -Has a reputation of graduating highly-qualified art education teachers
-Access with my personal relationship with Larry Percy
-Had a variety of preservice teachers who were in different stages of their training
-Also had several novice teachers who were located fairly close to me & to the university Troy or "Competira" University Four Preservice Teachers:
-C. J. - Youngest - Just changed her major to Art Education
- Paige - BFA - 5th year Master's
-Taylor - Bachelors/Art Education - Interning now
-Heidi - Traditional Master's/Art Education Participants Three Novice Teachers:
-Caren - First year teacher - Rural High School
-Sharon - First year teacher - Suburban High School
-Renee- 3rd Year teacher - Suburban High School Research Questions & Findings -Art Education teachers do come from some type of artistic background

-Teacher training had a strong effect on art education teachers’ abilities to negotiate their professional teacher identities, both positive and negative.
-Art Education teachers' biggest influences
-Most had families who supported them unconditionally

-They were questioned throughout their lives about their decisions to study art education & still felt like they had to prove themselves. -Art education teachers often feel isolated and uncomfortable, especially in education departments and where they are the only art education teacher in a school

-Those who had formal art experiences throughout their lives appeared to be more confident in their abilities to create and teach art.

-Positive research methods for gathering important insights into the struggles art education teachers face.

-Important information for art education teacher training programs to allow preservice & novice teachers to understand themselves more completely "Sto ancora imparando"
I am still learning.
