Milestones Worth Celebrating

I sometimes find it difficult to think of ideas for blog posts, so as I'm reading other blog posts, I'm looking at interesting linky parties to join. Today I am linking up with Make Moments Matter's linky party about milestones. I know I'm a bit late to the party, but better late than never!

Milestones! Something to Celebrate!

Professional Highlights:

  • Moved from Dayton, Ohio to Dallas (Plano), Texas for a new, amazing job in one of the best school districts for music education in the country
  • Finished my Master's Degree (finally) from Silver Lake College. I was so fortunate to study with Sr. Lorna and all of the amazing instructors at Silver Lake for the last six years and to graduate with many of my good friends from all over the world
  • Attended TMEA for the first time - Wow. Just. Wow. I was in awe for three straight days agh the sheer number of attendees and quality of the conference

Social Media Highlights:

  • Started this new blog, in the hopes of reaching more readers and enjoying more control of my blog
  • Became more active on twitter - follow me @kodalymusictchr (Click on the Twitter icon on the top right of this page to go straight to my Twitter feed)
  • Just last week, I started a Facebook page (Like my page by clicking on the Facebook icon on the top right of this page)

School Highlights:

  • Started at a new school with very different program requirements, but my second graders put on an AMAZING program called "Where the Wild Things Are." I found the program on Aileen Miracle's TPT site. It's part of her book "From Song to Stage" and is fabulous! I changed out one song. The kids and families LOVED this program. Here are the links to both the book and just this program

I'm looking forward to a restful, but productive summer, and soon, another wonderful year of milestones!

  1. Sounds like you had a great year! Big move, finished degree, lots of outside work work (blogging can be a job in and of itself, right?), and more! What a fantastic year and totally worth celebrating those milestones!
