Do you teach art in Colorado? If the answer is yes, then you'd better keep this group, like this group, introduce yourself to this group, and engage with this group!

    I teach in the Denver area, and have for the past 20 years now. But, what I like about this web site is that we can think globally (as opposed to locally) now.
    I've taught for public schools, colleges, and am now in a private school (for the past 7 years.) I really am loving teaching at a small, self funded school because they have their own agenda, and don't need to rely on the funding that public schools get. The focus is on character development for our students, as opposed to the test scores is was always on at public schools. Don't get me wrong, my students do very well on standardized tests. (Much higher than public schools do.) It's just not what we focus on. We focus on things like integrity, honesty, friendship, etc. It is a much less stressful place to work.

    Yes, I teach in the Denver area too. I am so weary of all the budget cuts in larger school districts. I am in a very small district, and it is a Title I school. We don't have much, but fortunately my principal is a strong ART advocate. As the only Art teacher, I have been able to start up a program here.
