Re: schedules

My schedule looks like this:
I wake up at 5AM and check my email, make lunches and either pack my spa
bag or get my shower, get dressed and drive 40 minutes to work. In
April we're moving 20 minutes from work.
On Monday, Wednesday and Friday I go to the health club at 7AM until
8:25AM. I can get to work by 8:30 because it's so close by.

I teach 5 classes on Mon. - Thurs. Three forty-five minute classes in
the AM, then the 25 min. dreaded lunch duty, then my lunch/planning
period from 12:10 to 1:35. I have 2 classes in the PM. My last class
is over at 3:10 and we can leave at 3:40. On Friday I have 6 classes
but no dreaded lunch duty. (My main reason for hating it is that I wish
I could be doing things in the art room.) After school I usually go to
Borders and read and get a coffee or I go food shopping or some other
errand. Then at about 4:45 I pick up my 3 (almost) 4 year old daughter
and drive home. At night it's the whole toddler bedtime routine, then
reading, then sleep at about 9:45PM just minutes after my child.

I never take work home because I do it all at school. However, I'm
always thinking of or planning art lessons (usually in the middle of the
night). I, too am very good at doing 16 things at once. I have a big
student art show every May with about 700 -800 pieces of work. Parents
help me mat and label (laser labels) everything starting in September.
I used to teach private art lessons after school but not since having a
child. I have 60 credits past my Masters so I only take an occasional
computer course. I just finished a web page course and will share my
web page with you as soon as it's up.
