HI Caryn
Our day starts at 7:45am. School begins at 8:10 and ends at 3:00pm. I teach
HS Art (9-12) and have one plan period that rotates. Our classes are 40mins
short with one 60min block that follows lunch. Every 7 days my plan period is
long period write after lunch so I have 90 glorious minutes!! to do whatever
I need. I am the advisor for yearbook and art club which keeps me at school
until 5:45pm 2x a week. I take my grades home sometimes. I used to take
work home but then I never took it out of my car :) I do a lot of prep work
at home because I have the studio space. I work on new projects and
examples. and no I never feel "caught up" because when I do my mind goes
into overdrive!
