After teaching at the high school I was beginning to wonder why I ever liked teaching before. It is very hard to teach art to those who don't want to be there! I had some good students too, but I spent so much time with behavior problems and grading issues. Teenagers are not the most agreeable people in the world.
Now I am letting my students choose their own projects and work at their own speed. What a wonderful way to help someone create something! Smile.
