I LOVE Art Sherywn. I was so jealous when one of the other art teachers at our
school had the opportunity to go to his workshop in Cambria this summer. I
taught summer school.

I have gone to every State Conference since I've been teaching, so far.Some I
have paid for, others the school has picked up the tab. I really feel that
they are necessary to keep improving the quality of my teaching. To me, if I
come home with just one new thing that I will really use, then it was worth
going. I feel so pumped when I come back.
I don't want to organize any conference. I would be to stressed to enjoy it.

I bet I would know your face if I saw it. Usually the same basic group of
people go to those conferences. Did you go to the National Conference when it
was in San Fran? Suzette
