Here I am doing what I love, conducting my high school band.

Growing my hair out and I actually fussed with it today.

I teach a 4th - 6th grade class and I teach almost everything; reading, math, writing, social studies, PE, music, drama, conflict resolution, research skills, personal reflection, investigation. and so on. There is an art and science teacher at our school, so even though I love art and science, I let him teach those subjects so I have time to cover my curricular areas.

Thanks for friending me! I think you will be very happy if you learn to play guitar. I didn't pick it up until I was 55 years old and I wonder why I waited so long! I am learning to play ukulele this year so I can teach it in school next year. The schools are doing away with 4th and 5th grade band and orchestra, so I am planning to teach my students recorder for woodwinds and uke for strings, while teaching them music theory. I bought 10 ukes, each a different color for next year; I can teach half of my class at a time with those and I have enough recorders for everyone.

Patterson is very good, he used to be a favorite of mine...then I took like a 3/4 year break of thrillers/mysteries/suspense and read mainly fiction books dealing with broken families, etc. Much fun to get out of the rut and now I'm finding myself drawn back to them, lol. Corben is probably one of my favorites right now. I wish I could say I would read anything, but somethings, I just....cant...romance! Sci-Fi! and Fantasy.

Anyway enough rambling, hope your doing well.
