With only so many teaching hours available, one of the groups that has been a blessing to add to my teaching schedule has been preschoolers. In some ways, this group is like junior high students. Teachers either seem to love teaching preschoolers or loath it. In my teaching years, it was the same for junior high teachers. Thankfully, I find it invigorating being around these often precocious and energetic young ones.
For 4 days, I geeked out with teachers from all over the world learning from experts in a wide variety of fields. While I was exhausted at the end of each the day, it also renewed my enthusiasm and idea bin for music teaching. This is my recap of the MusicEdConnect (MEC) 2017 conference.
