I am so blessed to have an amazing art teacher at my school. She truly inspires everyone around her to connect with their inner artist. I have not been immune to her artistic inspiration. Last summer I spent time drawing images that I thought would remind students of some of the things Great Musicians Always Do. This board is at the front of my room and is a great way to redirect students when they are acting a bit silly.
I can tell it has made an impact because during Teacher Appreciation Week I received the sweetest little note from a student. In the message she said "Thank you for believing we can all be Great Musicians". It's one of those notes that brought a tear to my eye!
