      Jackie -

      You're right - these lists are great places to find ideas and actual,
      living, breathing art mentors. Don't discount the value of setting up
      some classroom visits on your own though. Many principals are willing
      to let you travel if you find someone in a nearby district (or even your
      own district if it's big enough to have some diversity) to visit. If
      you have an early release day you can set up your own wandering schedule
      and see some neat things.

      That'd be the next best thing - enjoy!

      country visiting some world-class teachers who were on HER life list...)
