For the past 3 weeks, we have been working at home while our kids have been on their Chromebooks attending their virtual classroom. As a parent, I am grateful to the teachers who are doing their best to educate our children. We have to remember to be patient with the technology and do our best to help our students succeed in this stressful environment. Good luck and breathe!! (more…)
It is hard to believe that September is just around the corner. Even more difficult to believe is that most students are starting school from home. This Fall is going to be unlike any other Fall that we have experienced. Make the best of it. Take care of yourself. Breathe. Wear your mask when you are in public. We can do this! Just think of the parties that will occur when we are all back together!! Here are some articles to check out. Please let me know if you have any articles that I can add in the future.
I am embarrassed to say that it has been over a year since I wrote a “Percussion Education Reads” blog post. I don’t want to make an excuse for not posting. Instead, I want to post some of the things I have read that have made a lasting impression. For the remainder of the year, my goal is to post two “Percussion Education Reads.” If you have something that you enjoyed reading, please forward it to me and I will check it out. I hope everyone is well!
The first three months of 2019 are over and I wrote this Percussion Education Reads with some articles about goals. Did you set up goals at the beginning of the year? How are you progressing? One of my goals was to read more and that is going well. One of the books I have been reading is The Bullet Journal Method. (If you are not familiar with the Bullet Journal, refer to my blog post Percussion Education Reads – 6/3/18.) For me, this is the perfect tool for planning, tracking and scheduling. It doesn’t matter how you track your goals, just do it! (more…)
Where did the summer go? It feels like the kids just got out of school. It has been a busy summer for me and I am looking forward to some time to catch up and hang out with my family. Thanks to everyone who supported the Hasenpflug Consortium. As of last week, it has been fully funded. I can’t wait to working with Thom on the new piece. One of my goals this summer was to read more. Below are some of the books I am reading along with some lists for future reading. Please leave a comment and let me know what you are reading. There are so many books and so little time! (more…)
Summer is here! What are your plans and goals? I am going to be traveling a lot this summer and my summer goal is read more. I am currently reading Gut: The Inside Story of Our Body’s Most Underrated Organ (Revised Edition). It is a fascinating book about how the gut works. It is the perfect mix of science and “plain English” and I am enjoying reading the book. What are you reading this summer? Leave a comment below. Thanks for your continued support PercussionEducation.com. (more…)
