    Yeah, but substitute teachers are not expected to make the lesson plans
and preparations, sit at endless staff/committee meetings, do the grade
cards, hang exhibits, load/unload the kiln, etc., on and on and on before
and after the regular school day! When they go home, the substitutes are
free of the school day to day nitty gritty piles of papers and
    You, my artsednet buddies are the Best! Think positive for you and for
your students. Don't waste your precious energy fighting the ignorami of
the education world. Alas, they will always be with us. Smile and go your
way. Your students will love you for it.
