It has been a while since I have posted. The preparations for the New Year, final summer relaxation, the start of school and the belief that I didn’t have much to add to the conversation has kept me away.
Well, I am not sure how much I will add to the conversation, but I am promising here to post more regularly. My goal now is once a week.
One of the brightest spots in my day is my one class. As an admin, I only teach one. It is a vocal music class and I love it. It keeps me in the classroom, which I think benefits any admin. But that is going to be another post. This year, my class room, known as the green room (as you can see) received a smart board. An excellent addition.
When we learn a new song, typically, I would print a ton of lyric sheets for the kids. After all, they need the lyrics. But now I have a projector and smart board. So today I was ready.
When the students arrived, I had the lyrics to a new song on the board. Put them in two columns so they would all be there. I said “Hey guys, is that readable?” and they said an enthusiastic “Yes!”
So I moved my keyboard slightly to one side so that I wouldn’t block their view while I was playing and we started to learn the song. And one of them said “the green room just got greener.” And so it has. A paperless vocal class. It’s a start.
