Greetings from a GREEN middle school teacher (who hasn’t started yet)…
I’m a jazz trumpet player.
I began my path into music education JUST two months ago. On my 50th birthday in May 2016, I decided to turn to this passion for teaching music which I’ve always had. I’ve been a full time IT professional for 20 years (1997 until July 2016). And I don’t like kids (only kidding)!
Since I don’t know anything of what I’m in for, regarding the containment of middle school kids in our classroom, I request your advice (all of you).
Since, I have just now established my necessary teaching certifications and have been hired, (to split between two 1/2 day programs in two middle schools in Albuquerque). I’ll be attempting to establish both (2) middle school choir programs from scratch. (In one, I don’t have a room. We’ll be using the “common area” of the school, and I’ll have access to a piano which can be rolled out onto the floor in that space).
I expect to start September 19th, 2016.
Please hit me with any/all advice on what to on my first day in front of the kids.
I can’t possibly be prepared.
