Great to hear from you. Can I get your E-mail address so I can correspond
with you directly? I think I had it at one time, but couldn't tell you
where it is now.

It feels great to be at this point. I have learned so much from when we
first met. And I have more to learn. I am at Whittemore Prescott
Elementary for the next two weeks working with lower Elem. students. I am
getting certified k-12 and will be done May 10th.

I want to teach in NE Michigan, but I do not forsee a job for me this fall.
It is difficult in our area at the moment and I am resigned to the idea of
being a substitute teacher. I am sorry to hear of Alcona's layoffs (or was
it a retirement buy out). I called and placed my name on Tawas and Oscoda's
sub list. I will be calling Alcona next ( no time left today to call).

I am thrilled for you in regards to Japan. Please share what you work on.
I would love to see it as well as pictures and memorabilia from your trip.
How long will you be gone?

Is Chuck still looking for a Harley? Or have you already bought one.

Thanks for the NAEA journals tip. I will definately look up art and
literacy with them.

Educationally yours, Wynne

Hi Wynn:
Things are not too good in Alcona. 8 teachers will be gone next year and we
are absorbing the positions-those teachers will not be replaced. I miss
chatting with you-how did your St. Teaching experience go? I am certain you
will be very successful.

I received the Toyota Professional Development Award for 2002 and am going
to Japan in June. (All expenses paid). I am thrilled. I will share the
curriculum I develop with you if you wish. Any application plans in the
works for next year? Where do you want to teach?

Art and literacy projects and studies can be found in the NAEA journals
which can be purchased through their home office. Call them and explain
what you want. Also, I subscribe to them for $15 per year, (cheap) and get
a copy of every journal submitted. Makes great reading to remain fresh. I
have read a ton of those on the subject-KHubbard

 << File: ATT00018.htm >> I am looking for information on art and literacy
programs. I live in Michigan and have heard that New York has such a
program. Can anyone out there direct me to some sources?
I just finished student teaching (yea!) in my two content areas-art and
english. My host teacher told me that she had heard of programs where art
and english are used together to enrich learning. I am very interested in
this topic and would greatly appreciate any information.
