Ken, I don't know how you will do that. Much luck to you. The worst that I
had was teaching second year drawing and painting (15 students) and
graphics-silkscreen, woodcuts, etching, etc. (10 students) at the same time.
I know that sometimes we teach mixed classes so that we don't turn away kids
who sign up for a class and there aren't enought students to offer the class
alone. Just think about teachers of other areas teaching Spanish 1, 2 and 3
in the same class. Or a teacher teaching two history classes or two math
classes at the same time. It would never happen in my high school. But art
teachers do it all the time. I hate to turn away the kids. I've even had
kids come after school who had full schedules who wanted to take my class if
they were self starters and it was an advanced class. Eileen
