World Cultures???

OK, I'm so glad it's Friday... I'm especially glad that I had a large portion of the day off, and I could hang out in my back yard smashing plates. I need to smash plates today. I finally got news from my union, and yes indeed, I do have a job for next year. 80% art teacher and 25% world cultures teacher, all at the middle school. (Yes this equals more than full time, but I'll jump over that hurdle when I get there) I'm bummed. I like teaching elementary art. Kindergarten day is my third favorite day of the week. You guessed it, Sat and Sun come first. Anyway, I need a day or so to get used to the news and then I'll get excited. But today, smashie-smashie-smashie. There is an upside to my anger. (That movie is pretty good, by the way) I'm glueing all of the plate pieces onto a smallish cement pig. I haven't worked on a 3D project yet, so I'm a bit challenged, but having fun.
In other news, I think Zander and I are going to try and make the deadline for this project. Anyone else wanna try it? Come on, you can't go wrong with monsters.

Yes...I think the Union needs some elementary math classes! As a Mom of a soon-to-be middle-schooler... I hope we have an art teacher in our middleschool as amazing as your students will have! Middle school HAS to be the most challenging thing to teach ANYTHING in, I imagine.

Hi Beth! I still can't believe that Emily is growing up this fast. I'd love to stop over one of these days. Weekends are better for me, what does your schedule look like this month?

Beth said...

I work as usual.. but anything after 2 in the afternoon works well for me. We are free pretty much all the time! Let me know what works for you, we'd love to see you! I know a "tweener" that'd especially love to see ya!

What do you think the Jr. High kids will say when you ask them to act like "cotton balls" on their way to check out the kiln?

Julie said...

Just the usual... you know, when I saw jump they say how high?

Beth said...

If they are anything like my soon to be middle schooler... it will be some smartie response like... How am I supposed to do that, I don't come from a plant or I'm not soft and fluffy, Mrs Cannon I can't do that, cotton balls don't have legs! Something along those lines
