A week ago, I received my first full-time music education job...
I was assigned grades 5-8 Music/Performing Arts at a charter school here in Rochester.
I was so excited for this milestone in my professional career: an unlimited amount of possibilities on what to teach.
It was all up to me and I don't think I could have been more thrilled...
Due to a multitude of reasons, however, I ultimately came to the tough decision that this school was not the correct fit for me.
Though I will continue to sub at the charter and private schools throughout the remainder of the school year, I am so grateful for the amount of encouragement and advice I received from so many of you on how to start on the right foot from day one.
Knowing that a lot of you viewers are educators, or are en route to becoming a future educator, I hope you're able to take at least one of these pointers from my network and use it for your own teaching experiences.
