I guess I have it GREAT this year... Started teaching at a rural school
that had never had art before. I am teaching 6 periods per day, the
first 5 are elementary classes at 50 min each, the last period
alternates days between 9-12 and 6th, which are 75 minutes. This year
they were very generous in my budgeting, since the program was new.
They had already bought the kiln and the tables and chairs. They gave
me $6,000 to start up the program. The art room is in the elementary.
They have told me that next year I probably will get "only" $1000 for a
budget for the 500 elementary kids (I won't be doing the MS/HS next
year, as the new building will be open and I will get to hire a new
person). I tried to act like I would "make do" with that amount, when
inside I was jumping for joy. At my previous school, we had over 750
kids and only got $600 per year in budget. I was the queen of
fundraising and donations when I was there.
