So, for the last three months I have been training to teach Kindermusik. What an incredible journey! First of all, I have always enjoyed learning new things. I have learned so much about early child development. It is quite interesting and helpful when dealing with anybody, even adults. But add in that I have had to memorize music and lead singing and listening and movement activities. I have always loved to play, but this also includes a responsibility to pay attention to what my students need and how to help them get the most out of the program. It has used all my skills and then some. I have to admit, I didn't think it would rock my world as much as it has. I think, I pray, that it will make me a better teacher all around. It certainly has reminded me how important the relationship aspect of teaching is. Nobody does it perfectly. But it has given me a shot in the arm of energy and love. What a surprise!
