Bunki..I'm not sure if I have to post to you or if your friend will read the
listserve so hear goes...Oh, my heart is going out to this poor used and
abused teacher friend. I have no words to say except..make sure to contact
the union and get their butts involved. My initial reaction was where in the
world is this happening? Is it just the town that she is teaching in? We all
know what an administration can do to you if it is not supportive of the
arts. My deep down gut reaction would be to get out of there. This is a
situation that unless there are major changes determined to stay
the same or get worse. Can you apply for another job in another district? I
have too done the many schools in a week deal and it is tiring and somewhat
demeaning and disconnected. My advice would be to start looking elsewhere
and get "your foot in the door" soemwhere else. Make sure you have a
portfolio put together and start looking through the want ads. This is not
the type of place you want to stay. Take care and write me directly if you
want.I was in a similar position years ago. Best of luck, stephanie
