"That's really her job, not yours."

I guess it is all in how you look at it. I see it as give and take as I
feel I have a stake in how well kids score on those end-of-grade
tests. Having a good working relationship with other staff members has
a positive effect on my art program, too. I am willing to do what I
can to integrate when it fits my curriculum because it helps the kids
and I integrate often. Actually you integrate whether you intend to or
not. For example, I was working with first grade on the concept of
symmetrical balance last week when the classroom teacher walked in and
was pleased because they were studying line of symmetry in math. We
took a few minutes to talk with the kids to make sure they were making
the connection. I'm not sure I've made myself clear, but in reference
to the statement above, I doubt the math teacher was trying to get the
art teacher to do her job, she was simply asking for help for the kids
in understanding a concept that might could be taught better by an art
teacher. ann in nc
