Eileen, you really took the words right out of my mouth I feel often the
way you describe when socializing, that is; people do respond differently
to you according to wheather you are introduced as an artist or an art
teacher! Also it does not matter where it is there are always some bad
apples in every profession, I feel that unfortunately our art teacher donīt
seem to be educated in the right way, like you said I donīt know what they
are teaching them out there. Then to what we can do. We must of course
continue the way we are doing(and this group seems more or less to be doing
the right things!1) I also believe we need to have more of our art teachers
taught in Art Schools by that I mean that theyīll be taught the same as Art
majors and then they do the education part, or should I say they should be
taught by artist an certainly not be treated differently. In our school
right now we have three students from the Education Department at the
University and they are going to be art teachers. They love it at our
school, seem to fit right in and are taught with the other students. I
teach them about DBAE and they come and observe my childrenīs courses. I
think they are going to be GOOD art teachers. All for now.Rosa
