AMEN to Sara! Something has got to give...............my "wonder woman"
years came to an end when I was suppose to teach art to 1200 students per
week (6 day rotation schedule) in a very mid/high income area where demands
are tremendous both for regular ed and special ed. Many times my after
school time was taken up by attending a special ed group meeting with
advocates, administrators, teachers etc for ONE single special education
student whose parents demanded "who knows what" for their child. (parent's
lawyer was also present which was very uncomfortable)
Probably 10-12 teachers were there from 3pm until 6:30pm.............Come on
folks, this has to be addressed! By the way........ONE art teacher for 1200
is OUTRAGEOUS and not ARTRAGEOUS! Friday night I hit the pillow at 8pm!
