I love Fall. It is my favorite season, hands down. I mean, I like the other ones too but something about Fall... It's probably the spiced cider I feel validated to drink more frequently with the time of year. It literally tastes like liquid fall in a cup. After that description you know you want to go try it!
Anyways, it has been a crazy week. I just finished my very first concert! Woohoo! Sometimes, I look at it the wrong way and say "Man, I really shouldn't be stressed because I only have one group of students to really worry about and not four like my other friends." I should stop. But here I was, stressing anyway.
My kids did very well! I know this for three reasons. A. I had a parent ask me how to get her kid into orchestra. B. I got flowers (Automatic A's! but not really.)
C. My kids played their little hearts out! I did a concert reflection and it was pretty hilarious. I'll put those on the next post. I was so proud! An orchestra mother told me that she was so happy that this year I had picked out a piece that they could pretty well play and a piece that they could play super well, and that was awesome. I guess that is a pretty high compliment. I had to start the downbeat quickly because if I paused at all I'm pretty sure that the kids would see my hands were shaking. I didn't have to say anything either, which is also good because I would have rambled and rambled...ok moving on.
I just like being a teacher because kids give me stuff, duh! Happy Halloween bring on the caramel popcorn! I was given a bag from a student who assured me it would be the best caramel popcorn ever!! It was pretty tasty! I didn't take a picture and I don't think anyone would feel better if I showed you the empty bag. Caramel popcorn to me is like crack. Good stuff!
My other gifts tend to be drawings. I took off their names so if the picture looks a little weird that's why.
Apparently, I have a think for popcorn which is what that big one in the middle right below is.
I don't really know what this one is, but I like it.
I appreciate them. The sad part is that only one of these pictures is from one of my actual students....Hmmm...
