Art work suffering because you have to earn a paycheck

Please pursue your career as an artist. If you need extra cash you can always
wait tables. That would probably be a better choice for you than being a
teacher. If my kids were in your classroom and I heard you felt the way you
do, I would pull them out in a heartbeat. Artists have HUNDREDS of options
for careers that don't interfere with their artwork or damage young children
in the process. If you're look hard enough you should have no trouble finding
one of these. This is not meant to be a critisism-- just my humble opinion.

oblidged to spend a lot of time away from it. How does an artist manage to
juggle responsibilities of both artist and teacher. I have some artist
friends who are teachers and I personnaly think their work suffers due to the
demands of teaching. How does one reconcile those issues?. >>
