I teach Kindergarten. Yesterday, my children had art. When I picked them up, the art teacher let me know that the children cannot use the bottled glue very well. She implied that it was my job to teach them and that I am making her job harder. Well, here is the problem. I do not mind helping out other teachers as much as I can (example: we have been practicing the music for the Christmas program to help out the Music teacher). However, I do not see the art teacher teaching them their letters, to read, telling time, numbers, addition, subtraction, how to get in line, how to wash their hands, how to behave, and the list goes on and on and on. I understand that she may be frustrated, but we do art daily in my classroom. We use glue sticks because it is IMPOSSIBLE for me to stand over the students the whole art center to make sure that they do not get glue all over the table. Today, we used the glue bottles just to see what would happen. As I predicted, the tables look awful. I do not mind wiping off the table, but I do not have enough time in my day to scrub the table every day. I know that more practice will make it better, but I just do not have time to worry about how they glue. I am not trying to be rude, but she IS the ART TEACHER. Anyway, I just had to vent. Am I being unreasonable?
