I WORKED 4 YEARS IN THE WORST SITUATION THAT COULD EXIST. I WORKED IN 6 SCHOOLS WITH NO ROOM ON A CART. THE ADMINISTRATORS COULD CARE LESS FOR THE ARTS, YOU ARE BEING STRETCHED BEYOND WHAT SHOULD BE EXPECTED FOR AN EDUCATED PERSON, THEY ARE YOU USING YOU AS A BAND AID. I KNOW IT'S HARD TO MOVE ON BUT FIND A SCHOOL IN WHICH THE ARTS ARE HELD IN VERY HIGH REGARDS. APPRECIATE WHAT YOU DO!
