Most students spend their lives dreaming of getting out of high school... I've spent the past several years of my life dreaming of getting back into it.
Good news, folks, I have just been hired into my first teaching job!
This school year, I will be teaching high school choir
Never, in a million years, did I think I would get a high school music teaching position my first year out of the gate. Needless to say it is a BIG program with BIG responsibilities. I'm sure I will have more than a few moments of "Ahhh... I don't know what I'm doing here!!!" along the way.
But I am pumped about the job, the kids I will be teaching and the faculty I will be working with and I am ready to dive in!
Wish me luck... wish me sanity. ;)
I already know this is going to be a year packed full of learning, making mistakes, relearning, exciting times, difficult times and best of all... making music. =)
If you would, say a prayer for me as I prepare to step up into this program and attempt to affect the lives of teenagers through teaching music.
