1,500th Post!

April 19, 2013


This is the one thousand five hundredth blog post on the meartsed blog!


I am always striving to provide you, the readers, interesting and useful information and resources. In addition, I love to recognize and celebrate the work of visual and performing arts educators! I appreciate your efforts in your role supporting arts education and providing engaging curricula for students. Let me take this opportunity to THANK YOU, the meartsed readers and encourage you to send me your thoughts and ideas on the next 1500 blog posts! Happy Reading!

To mark this day here are a few facts that you might find interesting:
