Maybe I was a little strong when I described the conditions in which I work.
Maybe I reacted in a negative manner. I can't apologize for telling it the
way it is, however. I have seen many "specialists" come and go in our
school--mostly go. "Joy" the art therapist-and I'm sure she's very qualified
--said something that just is just so unrealistic, insofar our school is
concerned. Perhaps her techniques work in the rich, white suburban areas, and
that's great. I would love to hear some more realistic solutions to the inner
city problems. I try, but there is a frustration. Thank you for your kind,
supportive words. It means a lot to me.
