is liking my job more and more

Well... I am still struggling at staying ahead at school.   Its tough...but I can see where it will be a lot easier next semester...and especially next year.  I was frustrated the other day because I gave my Art 1 students a complicated assignment. It has a lot of steps and a lot of requirements..but it got better the next day and today was even better.  I'm very happy with the way the assignment is coming along. 
They are doing a radial balance assignment using black sharpies on white paper. They have to cut them out and glue 'em to black paper. They look like snowflakes. I really like them. 
Art 2, on the other hand... I am still frustrated with.  They are painting...and I'm not kidding, their paintings look like 3rd graders did them.  Its a shame that Putnam Co. doesn't have Art taught by Art specialists in the elementary schools, because it most definately shows.  My students in Elementary school in Cabell county were better at art then some of my Art 2 students.  Very sad.
I love that the weeks are just seeming to fly by.  One nine weeks is just able over!! That means we are 1/4 of the way done w/ the school year! YAY!   Plus, the holidays will be here before we know it.  I can't wait til my grad classes are over.  At least I get a decent break w/ college classes.  They end during the first week of December.  It would be nice to get that long of a break from work!
