    Hello dear artsednet follks,

            Some of you have already started back to teaching and your school
    hummocks are beginning to grow. This is dedicated to all of us for our
    mental health as we endure mounds of papers, the contents over which we
    have no control. I am sure we can all add a personal line to the
    observations below...hope to hear from some of you re: your local school
    political verbosity.
