  1. My most memorable teaching moment was : “Turkey Dinner” game with students. They couldn’t get enough of it!

    One of my most memorable teaching moments this spring (as an intern at Southwood MS) happened in a Music Theory class on Piano Lab day. I had decided ahead of time that I wanted to have the whole class play three exercises from their piano book, instead of working individually with headphones. I was aware that I needed to be very specific in my expectations BEFORE we went to the piano lab for the plan to work. I stated clearly what we were going to do, how we were going to do it, and the reason for my choice to have them play without headphones. Afterwards we filed into the piano lab, everyone took their places, I explained the exercise, I drew piano keys on the board for all to see, and I demonstrated (on my drawing) the chord changes for left and right hands. At that point I counted off and conducted the students and was thrilled with what I heard! I believe the students also were happy to hear themselves in harmony and in sync with one another. It showed me what a difference it makes when a teacher sets out clear expectations and has a solid plan.
