Inclusion/Behavior Ideas

Hi all, I have been collecting all of the responses concerning using art
as discipline, because it seems as if our district has been abusing this
lately. Any other ideas would be welcome.
I am part of a committee that coordinates our districts contracted
inservices. (4x a year we give an hour and the disrtict gives us a 2 hour
delay-3 hours total). If I were not on this committee, all elementary
specialists would be ignored and have to sit through some meetings that
would never apply to us. Our last on is coming up at the end of April. It
seems we are stressing about inclusion and being kept out of the loop, yet
all of us work in at least 2 attending every special
meeting for a child is not practical. We are also struggling with behavior
issues with principal's who believe in different approaches, plus one,
well, I'll leave that alone.
I know everyone is busy, it is almost Spring! If anyone has any thing they
want to share I would be grateful. You can also e-mail me at home or
school, school e-mail is:
