I had an absolutely fantastic time at the Texas Music Educators Association Convention last weekend. I attended nine different workshops where I was inspired, encouraged, educated and reminded why I teach music.
Then there was the exhibit hall. Every imaginable music related business was there. I worked very hard to stay focused and only purchase useful items.
For example, I found googly eye rings. Given my love of googly eyes https://judythewriter.com/googly-eyes/ this was an absolute necessity.
Then there was the dachshund slide whistle. What self-respecting, dachshund-loving music teacher could resist such a useful instrument.
Of course I also purchased books, rhythm sticks and egg shakers. Overall it was a very successful time at the exhibit hall.
Next week I’ll share some of the songs I learned. Hint, hint – they are about something else near and dear to my heart J
Exactly! And you never know when you will need and extra pair of eyes!
Conferences are so valuable. I always come home energized and excited to work. And, yes, I have been known to buy some fun things too. I try not, but who can resist goofy eye rings?
