It was very good to hear from two other K-12 art teachers- thanks Kathy and

I found it very interesting that we all teach K-12 but each have a very
different situation. Kathy teaches in a Catholic school, two different
buildings. Elizabeth teaches in a private school, NINETY students but no
classroom AND 7 lessons/day. I teach in a public school, 450 students and
though small, I have the luck of having a room! But, I am sure we all know
first hand the desire to have someone else to talk to! Department meetings
are very short and LONELY! LOL

Usually, I find it fun and refreshing to have such a vast age group to work
with. And then other times, I feel like I can't focus my attentions on one
particular grade level and feel I am short changing ALL my students. There
are the pros and cons. I don't have power struggles with others in my
department but then again, I can't have a brainstorming sessions on the best
way to teach printmaking with someone who knows much less cares.

I'd like to keep hearing from any teachers in a K-12 position. (If you are
not buried beneath all your preps!) Ann Marie
