Did I tell you I was interning at a Catholic School?

3 days a week.
I have lots to say about it but I shall wait.
mostly it has to do with female repression.
so I am a teachers aid for 3 and 4 year olds and I can
honestly say although I am very good at the job, the job
is not for me.

Lookee at this cute little site. I want to do mosaics very
badly. I decided that while I stay in this apartment Im going
to make it very beautiful. Paint the walls and add things. so
diy decorating is what Ill be obsessed with now.
I love the painted hanger on the bottom. how pretty and delicate.

DIY decorations

ooh and this one looks good too

I love prettying up my house but we aren't allowed tp paint our walls :( The Catholic school job sounds interesting. I saw your painting just sold on ebay for over $100! Good for you! I am too poor this week to bid on lovely paintings :( Maybe I should paint some more of my own instead. Rather than sitting at this computer..hope you are having a good day.

Hey Suzi how about a painting with a moasic table it it? You could do it and that would be cool.

Catholic school-no suprise there.

Back to drawing Fairies, right now I'm crazy in love with fairies.

I think it's so important to make your space beautiful. If anyone can do it, you can!

By the way, I went to Catholic school for 12 years. I know all about female repression. I'm in therapy because of it.

Effers.

Hi Suzi, I have taught in a Catholic girls high school for the last 10 years. Like all the other schools that I have been at in a long career, it has its good points and its bad points but, let's face it, I am still there and don't want to leave soon. Teaching is good for keeping you young ... most of the time.

dont' let one school make up your mind about teaching. I would say that the best thing after you graduate is to take a job as a teachers aid a a different school. you'll learn more about kids than you ever would in a classroom and how to handle them.

I worked at a small high school where I grew up and it ruined me for teaching for a good long time. After that I taught art to adults with MR and then went back tot eh public schools and worked there. Now I do something entirely different but I can say that every school is very very different and if you are in a public school instead of a private it could be very different.

BUT i look forward to seeing more art out of you- think of the time you'll have.

I'm not sure how the state laws are for you in Jersey but until Romney took over Mass I ran a small out of the trunk of my car biz of in group home art classes for adults with MR. It paid well, I made my hours and it rocked. I can email you more details if you would like. Also great resume fluffer.
