After several years working as a musician, I found my way into teaching. I say "found" because I never had any intentions of becoming a teacher. I happened to become friends with a lot of teachers. Their stories made the career seem more and more compelling to me. I struggled mightily through my first 3-4 years of teaching, but now find that I enjoy it immensely. Fun fact: You can see my face in the film "Waiting for Superman" right as the narrator says what great teaching is. Trust me, I was nowhere near a great teacher then - I’m still working hard to get to great - they just caught me on a good day!
