This week the new music teacher put on two concerts, one for the elementary school and one for the junior high-/high school with appearances by the drama class, some local dancers and the bands from the classes at the grade school.
They were both outstanding and great successes. It was completely different from the past few years which actually made me cringe.
I know that this teacher is much younger, but I am not sure that is the reason for her success. The teacher prior to the past teacher was much older than this teacher or the last teacher and he was successful too.
It seems to me that the answer is in her attention to detail, her enthusiasm, her concept of music and the arts in general and her willingness to put in long hours of preparation and to encourage the students in their preparation.
I simply know that her efforts were really outstanding and she is a great asset to the school, the students and the cmomunity.
I pray she will want to continue in Cordova.
