This blog has been created so others can follow my adventures of returning to a music classroom! I spent my first year out of college as a Middle School Band Director, then as the Music Associate at my church for five years. During that time I decided to make a change and began pursuing my Master's in Library Science. I spent five years as the Media Specialist at a primary school and deeply desired to return to my true calling. I've been given that chance in two elementary schools and I am really excited!

Getting started!

This week is going to be my first week in front of students as an elementary music teacher!  I am super nervous!!  And VERY excited!!  I will be going over the rules and starting to learn names and then doing a couple of fun songs.

Being on a cart is going to be an intersting challenge!  You always hear the negative points of it - I'm going to spend my time trying to find the positive things.

Do you have a favorite song that you love to do the first weeks back to school?

Super Excited!!!

After spending the last five years as a school media specialist (which I enjoyed very much), I am really looking forward to being back in a music classroom.  I have taught middle school band and worked as the children's choir director for several years, but I have never taught elementary music.  I plan on using this blog to share ideas and lessons that I find effective.  I hope you enjoy!
