I have been teaching for 11.5 years and finished up my performances for the most recent last night. Happy, exhausted and thankful that my kids pulled it off and for the other teachers and musicians who came to play for us. 4 groups in 2 nights....totally wiped me out.
I am really looking forward to the long weekend, I need the time to recover and gear up for the last month of school. I always think it will be breeze and it never truly is. Moving up ceremonies, proctoring for finals and a building without air conditioning, all are challenging and put the kids to the test and their teachers. Goal: stay positive and have fun with the kids as much as I can for the next few weeks while still teaching some music!
