Re: No room of my own

I don't get a set up table in the classrooms. (It's required by the
superintendent in a letter to all principals.)

I use 2 carts on the 2nd floor, on 1 cart, I put a large piece of masonite
that hangs over. The 2 carts have a bottom shelf too. I can use the table I
made on the cart as my demo and set up table. I use US Mail plastic baskets
with handles for each class, coca cola cardboard case boxes for my project
samples and a US Mail basket for my "desk" box. I have a 3rd cart for the 1st

In the mobile, I use the floor to set up on. I demo by using the dry erase
board easel that is in the room or clip the paper to the blackboard with a
magnetic clip or the kid's desk in front of me or the overhead projector on
the white wall above the blackboard.

As I speed walk down the hall, I try to straighten up my cart for the next
class. It takes me 2 hrs before school and 1 hour midday to get my carts
ready. After my 3 AM classes, my carts are in disarray, the same goes for my 3
PM classes. So after school, I stay 3 hours.

My own kids are 19 and 21. My husband shops, cooks and cleans. So I have no
responsibilities. I can devote the time to art.
