    Explain to your principal that you receive so many ideas for art projects in your school. Also let her know that there are so many ideas when we discuss some of the issues that art teachers truly have : classroom management, new art lessons, how to get "funding" for art supplies that will supplement what you might get from school division, school funds. Let your principal know that you would like to present (meaning she has a resource for new kinds of at school workshops). By all means volunteer for some of your principal's "art" projects around school.
