Hello class

My name is Jake Stapleton.  I live in Chatham, Illinois.  My wife and I have some new additions to our family.  Two boys, Wyatt (17 months) and Walsh (3 months).  I currently teach high school art in Springfield, Illinois. (Central Time) Some of the classes I teach are drawing, painting, art history, glassworks and graphic design.  I also coach both golf in the fall and softball in the spring.  I also like to do some of my own artwork, focusing on emotion in sports.  Link attached and a picture of my current drawing.


I look forward to this class and what it will do to enhance my current teachings.  I find it hard to connect with students who are out for long periods of time and hope this course may offer some alternatives. 

I have read all the announcements and enrolled in Learn2Learn.

    Hi Jake,
    I am following you now. I agree with Torey on the great work of art but I am a Pats fan (mourning the loss of football season). Just watching hockey now but its almost baseball season!
