you're right of course, maggie. i do itemize. but i'm irked because i have
to use those personal days. the LEAST the district should do is support
prof. development for art teachers since they do it for "real" teachers. i
really do want to go to minneapolis - never been there before. and boston
too. perhaps what i need to do is go and then do a dynamite presentation for
the school board or the administration (which used to support the arts but
is changing for the worse.) - make them see the light.
