You should see the other ones! I also appreciate the theme….
Making goal-setting, review and assessment a joint exercise with my students is helping me teach them to make clearer connections between their practise and the quality of their performances, and take responsibility for their work.
To my readers: Wow. I keep telling Eliza that she missed her calling as a special education teacher! She is doing a fabulous job teaching piano, so I shouldn’t fuss! Her approach to teaching piano will work well no matter the setting and especially if students have learning challenges. Follow her blog for terrific ideas!!

Bob, at Cabbages and Kings, has found this very helpful advice for those of us who need some organizational support! The author (and her husband) are quite clever with crafts, too!
This was the most viewed humour post of 2017 – I hope you enjoy….. Strange things happen in bars.. drinking too much can alter your persective in life and sometimes rearrange your facial features.

Group by Group has produced another excellent book, along with a week of fun activities, featuring Charlie Brown characters. Their work is always terrific!
Our theme for this week was lots of fun! We took a look at some of the characters in the comic Peanuts. Some of our amazing students posed as the characters–from Charlie Brown to little sister Sally to piano-laying Shroeder. Our awesome art teacher, Judy, and some of her talented students helped us by painting a Peanuts background for our models to pose in front of. Very cool!
Here is a link to the book: Who Are The Characters In Peanuts
What a precious heart Michelle has! How encouraging- and what great advice!
Good morning, friends! Welcome to the work week and another day that the Lord has made. Today I woke up thinking about all of you and what I would share. Typically, I schedule posts in advance, but last night I had a few people on my mind and in my heart, so I did what I vowed I would always do when that happens — pray.

IT’S ALL IN MY HEAD
My ear was itching in that deep down, hard to reach place. I tried for several days to scratch it by trial and error. Sticking my finger in there, jiggling it around did not help. Doing that thing with my tongue, scratching my throat did not help. Carefully inserting a cotton swab a little ways in did not work either. I tried flushing it out with warm water, then suctioning it out. This just made it worse. Now every sound was muffled, and the itch was still there.
There was no relief. Itching day and night was taking it’s toll on me. Lack of sleep, and unable to concentrate on daily activities caused me to call in sick to my place of employment on more than one occasion as the days and weeks went by.
I didn’t want to, but I made an appointment with…
