Sid,
Thanks so much for your suggestions. I find myself going around a lot
and doing more teaching one table at a time. So much I do is one on one
basis. With so many different skill and cognitive level, the type of
teaching I do is better on a one on one demonstrating instruction. This
is my biggest argument to administrators as they procede to stuff my
classes. Unfortunately I don't have a very good department chair, one
who won't fight for our program. I have an interview for a department
chair at another school, next week. Boy, do I see how NOT to run an art
program. The lessons learned by such challenging situations. I feel I
can teach anywhere after this place. A sad thing for I really love my
students, they deserve better. But politics proceeds on and we must yell
loud and with ample constructive back up to keep the arts going strong.
Thanks again
Jen
