This month on my personal Facebook page, I have been listing things that I am thankful for everyday. You know - the hubby, my munchkins, family, friends and my JOB! You know, I graduated from college over ten years ago and I have gone through my fair share of jobs since then...band director (1 year), church music assistant (5 years), media specialist (5 years) and now in my 2nd year as a music teacher. In looking back at how I've gotten to where I am, I kick myself that I didn't start out here! But, if I had done that, I would have missed out on so many growth opportunities and meeting so many awesome people! So, I am thankful for my journey to where I am! I am also over the moon thankful for my job! I am where I need to be and I LOVE it!!!
Mrs. King posted an idea that she's been using in her music room (http://mrskingrocks.blogspot.com/2012/10/4th-graders-play-pumpkin-pattern-memory.html#comment-form) and I am going to tweak it to use in my room! I am so excited about this!!!
I am so thankful that there are awesome music teachers out there that share their ideas, lessons and activities so I can get ideas for my classroom.
I encourage you to think about what you are thankful for on more than the one day set aside for Thanksgiving. It is a wonderful feeling and I love reading about it!
