Yea, let's talk about Day of the Dead; one of my favorite art
experiences! I've been part of community group of artists who stage a
yearly Day of the Dead exhibition; this is our 13th year. The Day of the
Dead exhibition ranges from the funky to the eloquent and truly
artistic. Here's a link to our web site:

Subject: [teacherartexchange] poaching other art teachers ideas
Hi, I wanted to check in on this thread. People who know me from the
list from way back know this has been a issue for me with another art
teacher. When she first started teaching at our school she would breeze
in on Monday and skin one hand out off the top of all my hard earned
home made hand outs. I tried hiding the hand outs. I tried not using
handouts. She would switch to running in and "Borrowing " my best
visuals and making scan copies. After ten years I know she is hopeless
about this. I have made my separate peace with it by requesting that I
teach only Art one this year.
This makes here poaching irrelevant. For this year at least. She
continues to randomly do what ever her hormones dictate even with a
sequenced curriculum on the books. For other people I would suggest
being very clear to the poaching teacher that it is not fair to the
students to do that as it is like having them read "lord of the Flies"
in 9th grade and than "lord of the Flies" in 10th grade. I am a teacher
who always is willing to share ideas, I just want the sequencing, and I
what never to hear " Oh we already with that with Mz. Poacher" "we
already did that too, with Mz Poacher" on and on.. Happy October....
anyone ready to talk "Day of the Dead" ideas?
