Hello everyone - I thought I'd join a teaching forum because I have a gazillion questions and need to know others who are in the same position as I am that I can empathize with. Hope you don't mind I was just hired about 1.5 weeks ago. First day of classes is today. I just graduated in the summer so I didn't expect a job right now. I'm teaching music between 2 schools (both elementary) but I'm only half time which is kind of nice. I didn't major in music although it has been my background for many many years. But....I don't even play piano...I know the basics and the hiring staff knew as well. I feel out of place - like shouldn't a music teacher know how to play piano? :mellow: Anyways......I'm excited but also really nervous.....I'd love to get to know anyone on this forum and hopefully we can help each other out.
