"My student teaching experience was outstanding. In some cases I saw what I didn't want to do as a teacher, and in others I tried to absorb as much information as I could from an outstanding music faculty. I also enjoyed that I was not limited to just elementary or high school. I did 5-12 in both settings, and I learned a lot about dealing with kids of all ages and backgrounds. It also made me discover my love for teaching beginning band students, and how fun they are to work with."
