This year is the 90th birthday of the NATA (Nebraska Art Teachers Association).  Art teachers from across the state are part of the organization, from the youngest grades to the university level.

The conference this year was held in Wayne, NE on the Wayne State College Campus.  Beautiful campus with some hidden gems of artwork!  What an amazing place for an art teacher conference.  :)  

This year was also the year I was nominated as the 2013 K-12 Nebraska Art Educator.  A huge honor, and very humbling.  There are some amazing teachers out there that I owe a lot of thanks to!  And a big thanks to Julie Ryan for nominating me.  

My parents and sister Rachael were able to come to the dinner too.  Made the night all the more special.
