This helped a lot! Thank you. Classroom management, clean-up, was all
done, pretty much, by me. This cannot go on for another year, though. I spent a
good 4 hours after school mopping, cleaning. It's good to hear about asking
for children to help. At first, I felt every second had to go to their
experiencing art. I now realize that's impractical. They don't need a worn out
teacher. Can't have it both ways. We all need to pitch in. And that is
part of education, too. Plus, if they clean up, they are more likely to
appreciate it when they make their own messes -- it raises their "consciousness."
