I am extremely blessed to be able to have a relationship with every student. As the music teacher, each student attends my class once a week where we get to be refreshed by the joy of music together.
Just today, a student said, "I wish this was like college because I heard you get music every single day." This represents the passion that my students have, and the joy they have in expressing it.
It is so immensely important to identify these passions within our children and provide them with opportunities to express them. Despite the hardship they've had to endure in the past year and a half, my students have shown extraordinary growth in their musical skill and knowledge. This is a huge win!
For the past three years, the students in my elementary music classroom have been sitting on the cold tile floor for all seated portions of music class. While I've had student complaints, there wasn't much I could do as my school could not afford to purchase a rug for my classroom.
Having a classroom seating rug would help my students to feel comfortable and focused while they grow as musicians.
It would also help with classroom organization due to this rug's bright, color-coded rows.
Please help my classroom to be one of hard work, comfort, and structure.
