Hi, I'm an Art Education student at the University of Wisconsin in my final
semester of classes before I student teach next fall. In addition to the
normal nine weeks of teaching in a elementary or middle school and nine
weeks teaching in a high school that I will be doing here, I am very
interested in doing an extra nine weeks or so student teaching abroad in
Ireland next spring (January 1999). My university has the program for me
to go through, but those in charge say it will be difficult for me to find
a placement in an Irish school with a full-time art teacher for me to
student teach under. This might be a shot in the dark, but I was wondering
if anyone in the talk group might have any information on the situation of
the art programs of Ireland, what the feasibility would be for me to be
able to find a student teaching placement there, and any other pertinant
information. I would be especially interested to hear from any Irish art
teachers who subscribe to this talk group.

Thank you very much for your time!
