Abstract:
Studies involving the observation of elementary art teachers within the classroom are scarce, if existent at all. This work presents data from a case study which examined two well respected elementary art teachers who teach in the same school district. The data from this study revealed that, although personality type tends to play an important role in the making of a teacher's presentation, and interactions, three other themes emerged as important in an outstanding teacher. Four themes were found to be conducive to outstanding teaching. Those themes are; (1) personality type, (2) educational background, (3) teaching of curriculum, and (4) enthusiasm. Findings indicated that although these two teachers approach students in different ways, they have both become successful within their techniques. Different personal approaches to teaching can prove to be successful and can provide students with a variety of tools for problem solving and knowledge.
