If you have been doing your job for 7 years and getting recognition from
your building principal there is no reason to submit to that type of
Emotional abuse and control are things we can choose not to tolerate. This
has really clicked with me as I remember all the people I tried to please

Matting vs. mounting
With my ninth graders, I show them how to mount, this takes measuring and
gluing evenly. Something they don't always take care to do. They are graded
on their craftsmanship as part of the project grade. I don't teach matting
because I will not give out mat knives.
With my seventh and eighth graders, maybe on one project I have them glue
down onto a precut black construction paper but not all. It depends on the
objective of the lesson.
When putting up a special show, I do some of the mounting myself but I am
not going to cut mats. My time is better used in developing lessons and
working with specific students afterschool.
Goodluck, He seemes like a difficult person to work with!
