I was in on those round robins we did. I was so excited to see a box come in the mail each month. I have retired from teaching. It was a struggle...I wanted to retire and yet I didn't, but I've been busy. I used to have a website, too, to share lesson ideas with other art teachers. The Getty list was such a great place for all of us to share ideas and learn from each other...and a place to make new friends.
Good luck on your new endeavors...

Several of us prepared notebooks of lessons, photos, and assessments and mailed them round-robin style for an entire year. I remember some discussion about postage - but you have to remember... only a few people had websites (Bunki and Woody among them - not to offend anyone... but my mind is a blank... I can remember going to other websites... just not the names!)
