Bunki,

It's simple. "Too real, no deal." In other words, how many people would =
teach if they knew as a sophomore or junior what they were in for for =
the next 30 years.

No one can provide a quality program for 180 plus kids a day. Day after =
Day.
Any administration that expects that is very foolish. Any one who claims =
to be able to do it should be suspect. Unless of course they did it for =
one year and then moved on.=20

Art educators at all levels need to be constantly looking for new jobs =
that present the opportunity for success for both the teacher and the =
student. I know we all have to eat, but, as long as you will do it, =
you'll be given the opportunity to. I have seen some impossible =
situations. I have also know teachers to stay with them and year after =
year becoming more and more disenchanted.

Let's face it, there are a lot of ways to use your degree if you will be =
a bit creative. In fact, that might be a good string to start. What you =
can do with a degree in art education.........

Thats all,
