Something I constantly have to remind myself of with my new job. It’s challenging to walk into a school where the previous teacher in your position passed away and left a large legacy behind.
I sometimes feel a lot of pressure.
Pressure to do well, to do right by the kids, to advocate for their music education, and to get along with my fellow colleagues.
On top of all of that, I have a music classroom that is all packed away into two tiny closets everything was packed so tightly, and so disrespectfully when my predecessor took sick leave that it’s practically a trap to get an instrument from the closet.
I’ve been blessed to have amazing women who have taken me under their wings. One in particular has really given me hope and guidance these past few days and I am insanely grateful.
