So far I've subbed for Math, Science and PE more than for art, so being
an art sub would be a welcome step up!
But each high school here now has 1 art teacher for 1500-1800 students
& 2 have said their dept has constantly been cut, so I don't think
there is even such a thing as an art sub. One MS I went to, the art
teacher didn't have an art endorsement, just an interest in it, so I am
not sure about the state of art education in Oregon...
