There are several personal benefits for me. I am the only art teacher in my
district. There are very few opportunities to converse with another art
teacher, receive feedback on ideas, and basically have input from others who
understand our unique position. Teaching art is different from teaching wood
shop, music, band, home ec, etc. Yes, we are all elective courses (at least
in my area), but I cannot ask any of these teachers how to get acrylic out
of clothes, where to find information on Kahlo, rubric ideas for our museum
trip, etc etc etc. The people on this list serv are my professional
lifeline. I can glean new teaching ideas, keep up to date on the latest
"buzz words" and theories. The only drawbacks that I can see is that I may
never have a face to put with the names of some of my closest comrades!
