Know how you fee, Martha. Been there, T-Shirt, too! But my
granddaughter who live with me ( I'm really Mom) said as only a wise
first grader could say when I was trying to explain her math homework:
 I told her "LISTEN TO ME!!!I'M A TEACHER!!!" in my calmest voice of
course. She replied, "But you're just an ART teacher!" 'Course she
knew she'd made a BIG BOOBOO when I crumpled her worksheet up and threw
it at her as she took off to her room!!!! (Grandpa ironed it out for her
later! Big creampuff!) We laugh now that she's twelve but it is just
how we art teachers are perceived! Debby :-P
