Is trying to teach in a school that doesn’t value art worth it?I am trying to decide about next year and just weighing my options . Pay is horrid but it’s not about that really . No one could do this job if they need to make a good living . I am limited to part time and cannot make over 11 grand for the year . I commute 25 minutes and receive no comp for gas. I have just been doing it for the kids .I am at Title 1 School with art on a cart and zero budget. I am areas that have close to 90% poverty . Behavior is always a struggle last teacher yelled constantly and literally told them to shut up . Is it worth the fight for the few students that are into it?and anyone think second year will get better ?thanks
