Re: Sharing an art room

i share my art room with the 7th grade english teacher. except for the
inaccessibility of my room during his 80 minute block, there is little
inconvenience for me. i have the last period of the day free and get most
things set up then. the english teacher, on the other hand, has to deal with
clay dust and the button down shirts hung on hangers across the chalk ledge
of the blackboard in front of the room, and teaching english at tables of 6!
pros: it makes me more organized. i never leave for the day without making
sure everything is tidy (not really in my nature). i make sure i have every
thing set up for the next day and don't rush to put it together right before
class. (my real nature) his class is first thing in the am.
cons: i don't have the quiet of my room to make the artwork of my own to use
for class examples and i find myself still at school at 5 or 6:00. i would
not want to teach english in the art room!!
