Making Something Out of Nothing

I have been grappling with the idea of creating a music program out of nothing since the summer began. It's been challenging trying to figure out what to do with a huge room that was originally empty of materials. Since my last post, I have done lots of things to get ready for my first day Monday:

  • Went to the "Warehouse" in my district with the music liaison for the district and got lots of Orff instruments (which I need to figure out how to use!).

  • Went to PD and got an influx of information from fellow music teachers and administrators

  • Got all my gadgets to teach -- district authorized computer, ID card, key, etc.

  • Met my "roommate" -- the technology teacher who will be using my room for an office space

  • Met the fellow art teacher at my school (who has unfortunately had less time to prepare for this year than me)

  • SET UP MY ROOM!

I'm really excited and anxious for the first day of school! I can't wait to see the kids -- the little humans I have been gearing up for all summer!
