What's more, the administration in my school thinks I'm mean too
because I give real grades in middle school!

<< ds on the school and your support. Little kids tend to all love
art...they usually get to come only once a week, etc. I would say of my
students I see a day, 20 wanted to take art, 20 definitely didn't want to
take art, and 60 don't really care...they thought art was "easy", right
a study hall. They are very surprised I expect them to do work/put forth
effort for a grade. (So I went from bring the "nice art teacher" in elem.
the "mean art teacher" in HS!) >>
Melissa...Thank you so much for putting my sentiments into words. It's good
to know someone else is feeling like I do. It's kind of like the glass
half full or half empty. I try to concentrate on the positive energy, even
though it's not always easy.
