Re: Using art as discipline. (fwd)

Most of my students do the same, but there are those teachers...UGH. But as
for making it up, because of field trips, delays, etc.- my rule has to be no
way. It simply does not happen with my schedule (I am at different buildings
on different days and they are pretty full) Re-sheduling does not usually
work for all and then I get the those who complain that I made it work for
one, but not for what prep time I do have, I save for myself to
rearrange if I have a meeting or something that I have to go to.
I know that probably sounds stand offish, but I have learned that some people
never grow up! LOL
