Music Teacher Advice

Q: What do you wish you knew about your job when you first started out?

Music Teacher in Gary:
"People Skills 101."
Integrate music with the other core subjects. It will help non-music people value your work. General Ed classroom teachers are territorial. Be careful how you tread. The arts are still generally not respected. Be confident and able to give a reason why music is necessary and important to your administration, co-workers, students and parents.

Music Teacher in Indianapolis:
"Lots of Outside Work."
While teaching is very rewarding, it is physically and mentally exhausting. There never is enough prep time to prepare for teaching and so you have to do lots of work outside of the 40 hours you put in. If you want to be a teacher, be prepared for it to consume your life.
