My first four years of teaching

Danielle Hoff's avatar Danielle Hoff

My art-making typically focuses on human emotions and reactions. “My first four years of teaching” is a large-scale mixed media piece which focuses on the pressures of a teacher in public education. Teaching is my passion; I love it, but it has also been the hardest thing I have ever done, being a source of struggle, hurt, fear, anger, and exhaustion. I know that I am not alone in this sentiment and as of recently that has been seen nationally with walk-outs, strikes, and the gripping reality of a teacher shortage. Teaching is a profession where the expectations are highly unrealistic and there are many opinions on how the job should be done which creates an insurmountable pressure. Instagram: @artisthoff
