In a few weeks I will be attending a school to work conference in Phoenix and
Tucson, then going on to the Siggraph Conference in L.A. (graphic artists
conference). I recieved a scholarship from the Siggraph Education committee.
I am attending these because I see a potential for improving the employment
of the abundance of artistic people in my area. I teach grades 3-5. When I
asked my principal for support to go to the Siggraph Conference, she seemed to
think there was no way I would integrate the information into my classes....
How can I re-educate her? I have tried pointing out that I am the only art
teacher in our district who sees all the students in the school. Part of my
job is career awareness, that I know, any other suggestions? My building has
an LCIII computer in every classroom....which is on a district wide intranet
and we also have access to the internet, (only 5 of 20 classroom teachers
utilize that). I have access to a power mac also, but have to borrow it to use it.
Another question.... what do I need to do to become a computer graphics art
teacher at the HS level? Perhaps I would be more effective in that area.

Thanks in advance for your ideas!
