I'm in a time warp???????????

I posted after school and the entries are in my list of entries but not on the blog?????????? How long does it take to see them? It's been hours!


I forgot to mention the onlline art gallery I have begun using to showcase my students work. It is called

Click onto Park High School and you can see what we have been up to. Enjoy!

OOHH! I Feel Famous!

Just to introduce myself to my loyal readers....I teach high school art. Specifically art metals and drawing and design. I have only been in the high school since fall but am loving it. Our current art metals project is to create a chain. So my little beginners are making their own links and linking them into the design of their choice. My TA however is a crazyman... but it turns out very inspirational for young metal artists. Today he wore body armor to school that he had made. A shirt of chain mail as well as a headpiece! Right out of King Arthur's court! The body suit weighed 27 pounds and the headpiece about 6...needless to say he was exhausted by the end of the day!

Cut throat in the high school

SO this is scheduling week at my school. I had no idea how cut throat registration could be. Some of the departments put signs inside the bathroom stalls and other gave out suckers with signs encouraging students to take their classes.. Bribery!
It's kind of funny but we all want our classes full. So ....I guess all is fair in love and high school registration!

First Attempt

If today is the first day of the rest of my life, I guess I'd better get going. I start each day reading the blogs of the people I care about. I hope they too will enjoy following me.

I am getting very excited about my upcoming trip to France. I have wanted to travel there for quite some time. I'm pretty old to be learning that I can set a goal and really get there! We have most of our tickets and passes, and our passports arrived too. Now I have to get working on the language. Today's phrase....Ou sont les canots de sauvetage? (Where are the lifeboats?)
