It was a crazy, hectic week for this elementary music teacher, but it was also AWESOME! Here are some highlights from my week…
- On Monday afternoon, I found myself able to go straight home after school and just do whatever I felt like doing! I didn’t have piano lessons and I didn’t have a client to train. It was weird! I ended up doing a lot of writing, starting a puzzle, and watching Survivor with Paul.
- Tuesday morning was the first rehearsal the teachers had for our performance in the 3rd and 4th grade musical. The theme of the show this year was “Summer Double Dreamin’”, so the teachers performed Vacation by The Go Gos. I sent out all the material so they could rehearse on their own. I didn’t know what would happen when we all came together, but everyone looked AWESOME! They all learned their parts and just hopped right in. And I bet there are at least 15-20 staff members participating so far. It means a lot to me that they support the show and are just all around game to be silly and have fun!
- I really effed up on Wednesday. My students were performing their musical on Thursday and it was to be recorded by a video-grapher. Except I told him the wrong day, and he showed up Wednesday instead of Thursday. I ROYALLY SCREWED UP. He was so gracious and cool about it though. His response? "Shit happens." What a guy! I was thankful for his graciousness!
- And Thursday was the big day! My students were troopers. They had a long dress rehearsal in the morning, a show in the afternoon and a show in the evening. THEY WERE STARS!!!! I know they had a blast. I did too. I can't wait to talk to them tomorrow and tell them how awesome they were!!!! But for now... time to relax!
Tell me a highlight or two from your week!
Do you work with fun people?
