what it's all about...

Me as an ART TEACHER

I began teaching art at Mineola Middle School in 2004 along side my huband, Shannon Seaton (Mineola ISD's One and only drama teacher!). I loved teaching this age because of the unique stage in life, somewhere caught in the middle of still being a kid and turning into a young adult. Some students came up to my belly button while others looked a few inches down at me. It's a fun spot to be. I have loved art since my early years. 2nd grade is where I truly found my calling as I was encouraged by my favorite teacher, Mrs. Raines at Ross Elementary.

As I got older, I never really considered being a teacher, because I was too in love with being the art student! But as time came I went to college and was a little lost. I knew I LOVED art, but beyond that I did not know my abilities. A trip to the counselor's office my freshman year at San Jacinto Community College changed that. I took a career and aptitudes test and discovered I would make a great teacher.
I honestly did not think I was strong enough to do that, but kept it in consideration.
I met my husband in an art class at Sam Houston State University. He was studying to be a drama teacher and sparked my interest to go the teaching route. Years later, we married and taught together in the same school for 10 years! It was a great blessing and full of memories. The Summer of 2013 my husband, Shannon Seaton passed of unexpected heart failure. I decided to pull through and  teach another year without him by my side and Mineola. Although, I did love my school and my students, I needed a change. After the year was completed, I felt a pull to move closer to my hometown of Houston and change my teaching situation. This was very hard, but I knew that it was what God wanted after I got a job teaching K-5 at Krahn Elementary. The job was a blessing. The transition was difficult after teaching 6-8the grade for a decade, but I am growing with my Krahn Cardinals everyday and plan to stay as long as they will keep me.

  2. Oh WOw! Thank you so much. Well, I have been teaching for 10 years and take a lot of pictures of the kids' work. Having all these pictures helps me in so many ways. It helps to have a collection of the best of the best from over the years to post online to inspire others. I also take advantage of the fact that not only to I teach artists, but I am one myself. SO, I love to design all my own blogbuttons, illustrations, and all that stuff.
    I do have another blog that is more personal.

    I have 2 now because I had a bunch of stuff on the blog you look at that was not at all teaching art and it just seemed out of place. SO, I decided to just start another one about life, fashion, faith, and family. I would love you to look at that one as well. I just kinda redid it and made new buttons and designs. Hope you have fun with your blog. Take it slow and easy. Let me know if I can help you anymore.
    In HIm,
    Tabitha

    1. I was having Herpes Simplex Virus then i came across a review of people saying that they got treated from Herpes Simplex Virus by Dr VOODOO., So i gave a try by contacting him through his email and explain my problem to him. He send natural medicine herbs to me and told me all the things I need to do and also give me instructions to take the medicine, which I followed properly. Before I knew what is happening after two weeks the HERPES SIMPLEX VIRUS that was in my body got vanished . so if you are also heart broken by any deadly diseases like HERPES HIV, shingles,low sperm count or bringing back your ex lover, this great man is extremely the best in which I have seen if you also need a help, you can also email him at voodoospelltemple66@gmail.com Add Dr voodoo on whatsApp +2348140120719

    1. Thank you! I taught this continual line landscape years ago for middle school. I just based the grade on understanding, neatness, creativity, completeness and use of one line. I finally got a TPT store! Yay!! It is here. Thank you for your support. Have a great year.

  10. Hello Tabitha. I'm writing to ask permission to use your "How to Draw a 3-D Box" instructions for my middle school students to reference. They are creating from home (Covid time) and I'm asking them to draw a box with something coming out of it that they would send to a friend or relative. Thanks for all of the inspiring content and words of truth that you share from Christ! -Kathy

  11. I got diagnosed with Herpes On February 17, 2016 and it resulted in a cluster of painful ulcers and many problems while urinating..  My situation almost caused me my marriage because my husband was having pressure coping with his work and my situation.. One morning, I read a testimony on a blog page online, of a natural cure from a Herbalist named Dr Razor who cured a 50 years old retired US Army official and he is now healed from dementia.. I immediately contacted him and I told him of my herpes, he encouraged me not to give up. I administered the natural Healing medication he sent to me and a few weeks later I went to the hospital for a check up and the result was clear.. It's been 4 years now and I am proud to let you know that I am still healthy and living happily with my husband and my 3 kids after the healing. I felt it best that I let you know that if you contact Doctor Razor through his email drrazorherbalhome@gmail.com , you can have a second chance of living again,because he will give you good results.. I never believed in Herbs but Doctor Razor proved to me that Herbs Is a free gift from Nature and It's Importance to Mankind. And as well the effectiveness of Herbs. By completely curing me with his herbal Medicine. Reach out to Doctor Razor through his Email : drrazorherbalhome@gmail.com , Whatsapp/Call him via +2349065420442. This is also Doctor Razor's Herbal Website : https://drrazorherbalhome.wixsite.com/drrazorherbalhome . Thank you very much once again Herbalist Razor
