Yesterday marked the last day of school for the 2016-17 year. It was a fulfilling year marked with fun, laughter, new experiences and success. One of the most heart-warming gifts a teacher can receive is a hand-written note from a student. Although I got many this year, this one stood out: it’s from a kindergartener who was initially hesitant to come to music in September. She grew to love it and would always leave with a sweet smile, warm words and a tight hug.
I look forward to the day when I can share my love of music and teaching with a child.
