I'm getting confused here. I'm new to this "listserve" and have never used
this form of communication with "strangers" if you'll pardon the expression.
I want to be conversing with a group of colleagues who share the getty goals
for improvement of art education so that in the future there would still be
art specialists in America's classrooms. I figure that the getty people are
probably putting a bit of money into allowing me to converse with my peers in
this manner and i feel a responsibility to try to post messages in regard to
improving art education for the benefit of all. I kind of feel that a
benevolent big brother is looking in on what we are saying and nodding
approvingly at how we are taking time out of our extremely busy schedules to
help each other in our common quest. I definitely thought this was a kind
of public place where what I say is being viewed by many interested parties,
so i want to monitor what i say and hope it will be only beneficial to all/any
who may read it now or in the "archives". I want to be part of the record of
what the best people in the entire teaching profession were thinking and
saying at the end of the twentieth century. The professional content here has
contributed to making me a better teacher this year! It helps me in my
district, where i'm the only art specialist, to know how colleagues from
across America are dealing with issues such as teaching children art
aesthetics, criticism, history, design, use of technology, and studio work. I
am also interested in traffic management in over-crowded art space, how you
handle three or four computers in twenty-nine classes of twenty-seven students
forty minutes once a week.

Thanks for being here for me. Please enlighten me if I have a short-sighted
view of the above.
