I would like to know more about teaching art from a cart -- the most
successful kinds of projects, the nightmare projects you'd NEVER do again, how
you organize your supplies, if you have a room or office and storage area.
Y'all would do a service to other art teachers if you would put together a
handbook!

Taking three hours a day to prepare the carts sounds like a nightmare to me!
I think I'd simplify my projects to save my sanity. Kids won't learn or enjoy
with an angry, frustrated teacher, no matter what the source of anger and
frustration. I'm not saying these teachers talking about life on the cart are
angry or frustrated, but I certainly would be. I value my time at home
because it's my recharging time. I may spend time on the net learning things
from other art teachers, and may read about things I want to do with my
classes, but my time at home is MINE!!
