Re: Your Weekly Schedule

I think you need to talk to your principal about your schedule and let
him know that you cannot be excellent under these conditions. This is
the first I have ever heard of an art teacher being on call to help
other teachers grade assignments and cut paper. Sheeeeesh! Nobody in
the school has more prep than an art teacher! And you certainly have
more to grade than a classroom teacher, given the number of students you
teach. Add to that the time it takes to plan, mount, and hang art,
change it out frequently, make your projects in advance yourself so that
you can anticipate problems, have examples, etc. This is above and
beyond duty!
