Betty I know that really helps! I think the feeling cared about- that others recognize what art teachers do is important, means a great deal. What a good way to start the year! Hey, you know summer vacation is over when your school office calls you to tell you about a parent upset about last years grade! That's one of the things I did yesterday. Have a good year. Deb/Kent

Subject: Re: [teacherartexchange] my desks(or lack thereof)
I posted a few days ago that my order for desks to<br>replace the semi-legless tables had been denied - well<br>from what I can tell my principal stepped up and<br>apparently used his own fund (from selling slushies at<br>lunch)to get the desks! And they are letting me keep<br>the few undamaged tables for workspace. <br>(although the superintendant who denied the order got<br>us raises and other things we needed so absolutely no<br>complaints there!) <br><br>So - new dropped ceiling and lights, the custodian<br>painted all my cabinets that I'd offered to paint, and<br>new desks. New table easels, new digital camera,<br>Akuacolor inks (the price has come down), a few<br>chainmaille jewelry supplies from Canada, small<br>carving stones and tools - I am really looking forward<br>to the year. And the older ladies at my church are<br>collecting yarn from all their "stashes" for me too.<br>So I'm feeling appreciated and supported which isn't a<br>bad way to start a year.
