Are you taking stock of the school year? Still spring concerts on your schedule? Other items to check off on your to-do list before you head out for the summer? How do you feel about the soon-to-wrap-up school year?
Post on the NAfME Facebook page to let us now what went well (and what didn’t) during your concert or even a Wednesday music class. Share the highs and lows of your school year with other music teachers and with students.
And speaking of summer, what are your plans? Classes to hone your skills? Spending time with family and friends. Teaching? If you take a vacation, where do you go? Not surprised if you plan to find some music somewhere.
The Livability website looked at music cities beyond the usual suspects, including New York, Nashville and New Orleans, They suggest:
Chapel Hill, North Carolina
Fort Worth, Texas
Time to hit the road?
NAfME will be around over the summer so don’t forget to keep Tweeting us or posting on Facebook any thoughts you want to share while you are away from school. Or just pick up the phone and call us at (703-860-4000 or 800-336-3768) if you need a question answered.
In the meantime, here is a social media year in review through our eyes…and yours.
