Considering a move, help! I teach k-12 vocal music at a school where I have/had a vision to improve the culture of singing (very sports focused small school) to build a choir program, which will take several years (2 years done). Been working diligently with my elem. music classes to create a climate where students are comfortable/willing to sing. I'm estimating 3 years to see middle school students buy in, and 5-6 years before my high school program sees any fruit of that labor. Stay? Move on?

The current school schedule makes it difficult as well to see high school students to join up. And there is an apparent lack of interest in choir, school-wide.
I could take a job to teach k-4 general music, 5-8 choir, and 5-8 band. No high school. Nice schedule, same pay, very supportive admin. A smaller school though... (will it have longevity if this pandemic continues?) Decisions, decisions.

My current employer has a not great work/life balance but it’s much easier to get promoted.

Any digital learning suggestions for music? Thanks

I'm currently looking for a music therapy equivalency program. Google has only done so much help as it keeps bringing up masters programs and full degrees. I'm in Wisconsin, currently teaching full time, and I love my school district, so it's not like I can take a couple of years off. I just have a lot of students with special needs who would benefit from music therapy. I have done extra classes for them where we do stuff that I've picked up from others, but I want the certification.

I’m going to be teaching a self contained special education class next year. In my 27yrs of teaching, I’ve never encountered anything like this. Does anyone have any suggestions?
